Join renowned master instructor Samay for a workshop focusing on the Arabic rhythm “Samai” as part of our Egyptian Dance workshop series.

📢 GUESS WHO’S BACK?! 📢

As part of our Egyptian Dance workshop series: #MEPAA is proud to present the internationally renowned master instructor (founder of Samay Mideast Performing Arts and our very own Mama Bear) in FEBRUARY! 💕

This exclusive workshop with Samay will explore the beauty of the classical Arabic rhythm “Samai” and how to utilize it in an elegant oriental piece inspired by Muwashshahat – with live drumming by Fadi El-Sabeh​! 🎶

Faride Fahmy describes this genre as, “the plural of the name Muwashah, a poetic form that includes music and vocalization. It is a sophisticated musical genre that originated in Muslim Spain during the tenth century. It is described as a strophic poem with repeated rondo-like returns to a musical refrain. The strophic lyrics of the muwashshah directly expressed the poet’s own thoughts and sentiments. The lyrics spoke of love, joy, and sorrow.”

Don’t miss the opportunity to dance with the one and only Samay!
