This year, the US participated for the first time in Cairo's International Sufi Music Festival with Voices of Inspiration, a gospel group from Harlem.
This year's festival brought together 12 countries, including Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Algeria, Turkey, Norway and Spain to share their sufi and religious music. The festival was held at the Dome of Al Ghouri, a beautiful building that was built in 1505 in old Cairo near Al Azhar and Hussein Mosques.
ART+ interviewed different music groups and the festival's director Dr. Intessar, who spoke about the Festival's message of peace, friendship and compassion. ART+ also interviewed Share the Mic, which helped bring Voices of Inspiration to perform at the Festival. We will also tell you how American artists can participate in art and cultural events in Cairo. The show will be broadcast on September 7.
