LGW x SPEAK present: Egyptian ensemble Mazaher introduced by Ahmed Mostafa
Le Guess Who? is proud to welcome both artists and visitors of many different nationalities to Utrecht each year. In collaboration with SPEAK, we started a new video series in which Utrechters with foreign roots introduce an artist on the Le Guess Who? 2021 line-up from their country.
SPEAK connects locals, newcomers and migrants in the city of Utrecht, by organizing language courses and other cultural events. In this video, Ahmed Mostafa from Egypt introduces Mazaher, a group of mostly women musicians who play Zãr music.
Mazaher will perform at Le Guess Who? 2021, together with a.o. Etran de L'Aïr, Siti Muharam, Arooj Aftab, Mónika Lakatos, Damon Locks’ Black Monument Ensemble, and many more.
