dance, music & body wisdom from egypt
Up to now there is an urgent need to safeguard songs, melodies and particular musical genres - traditionally passed on orally from generation to generation - which are in danger of being lost for a multitude of social and political reasons. It is hoped that with these recordings the musical traditions of Egypt will survive and even spread to new audiences beyond their cultural roots. This superb and diverse collection of popular and classical music by tanz raum is gradually being discovered and appreciated by a small but growing circle of music lovers, film makers, dancers and ethnomusicologists.
Famous Egyptian musicians, singers and composers have collaborated with tanz raum on numerous CD recordings. These recordings, mainly made in Cairo, aim to preserve or innovate. Many of the undisbutable masters in these recordings died over the last decade. Find their master pieces exclusively here in the shop.
