CJC X Mada: Found in Translation feat. Maii Waleed

Found in Translation is a collaborative event series produced by Mada Masr and Cairo Jazz Club, it invites musicians to respond to a text selected by Mada Masr, in musical form. Each evening will feature a new track composed by musicians who are invited to play with, reimagine, or reconstruct the text as they see fit. Mada provide the text; CJC provides the sound. The results are as much a surprise to us as they are to you.

For the first installment of Found in Translation, we thought it appropriate to begin with a text about Music. Singer/songwriter Maii Waleed lends us her dreamy vocals for the night, along with the synth frequencies of Ahmed Saleh and the drum lines of Marawan Waheed, in an interpretation of a text by Mada Masr contributor Adam Yassin, titled Decrescendo Mohamed Helal, the legacy of a musician and his music. They will be followed by Alexandria-based trio Telepoetic, who will close off the night with their blend of experimental electronica and acoustic instruments
