Music, Freedom and a bit of Egyptian Cinema: Live Performance by Dj Ma'at and VJ Um Amel

October 23, 2011 - 7:00pm


In this live performance, VJ Um Amel joins DJ Ma'at for an evening of electronica and world beats against a remixed display of several musicals from Egyptian cinema including Lahn el-Wafa' (1955) starring Abdel Halim Hafez and Chadia; 'Afrita Hanem (1948) starring Samia Gamal and Farid El-Atrache; and Fatma (1947) by Ahmed Badrakhan with visualizations of social media, art, and design emerging from the revolutions of dignity spreading across the Middle East and North Africa. Drawn from the databases of the R-Shief Initiative, pioneered by VJ Um Amel, these images pay tribute to the spirit and vision of the people.
