Nouran Abu Talib, a rising Egyptian singer released her first song “Fawazer” in Jazz Tales Festival which is currently held in the American University in Cairo (AUC) in its third edition.
Abu Talib’s song was performed by the participation of a Dutsh band called “Under the Service” to form a mix of human voice and jazz ensembles to produce sound effects which are used in nature sounds’ tracks.
This music type is unique; it depends on improvisation and reflects tranquility.
The Egyptian singer also performs some popular songs of the Lebanese singer Fayrouz like “sabah w masah” and “Aho Dally Sar” song of the Renowned Singer Sayed Darwish.
This performance depends mainly on mixing jazz music with eastern music and Arabic folklore.
This technique was followed by Abu Talib in many other jazz parties that were held on theatres for young spectators.
It’s worth mentioning that Jazz Tales Music Festival will conclude its free-of charge events next Saturday after presenting 13 musicals to a large number of Egyptian artists.
