Le Cri du Caire

The young Egyptian poet, singer and writer Abdullah Miniawy became a voice for the country’s young generation in the wake of the Arab Spring and the crushed revolution of 2011.
Now Abdullah Miniawy’s unique band Le Cri du Caire is coming to Fasching. A band that at the crossroads between rock, Sufi poetry, jazz, spoken word and oriental diphthongs creates a border-crossing universe. A musical universe that is characterized by spirituality and a longing for freedom and that carries the hopes of the oppressed, trapped in a political, social and religious oppression.
Miniawy’s Sufi chants, whispers and cries over hypnotic electronic loops, cello and clear trumpet lines characterize Le Cri du Caire’s self-titled album which was released in 2023 with British saxophonist Peter Corser, German cellist Karsten Hochapfel and French trumpeter Eric Truffaz alongside Abdullah Miniawy. Now this completely unique jazz-rock-sufi-poetic Le Cri du Caire comes to jazz club Fasching as a trio.
