Fathy Salama and Sheikh Mahmoud Tohamy’s Sufism vs Modernism bring together the sounds and rhythms of traditional Sufi chanting and contemporary Egyptian jazz; the Dhow Countries Music Academy’s concert of Zanzibari Taarab and Kidumbak blends the instrumental colours of Western Indian Ocean culture with the African-Arab synthesis of Taarab music.
