Moroccan"Jwad Al-Shary" a great Sufi singer, staged his first concert in Egypt at the Open Theater. He chose to put on his concert in Ramadan in Egypt under “Ramadan Nights” programs at Cairo Opera House.

His songs were worthy of admiration among his Egyptian fans. This admiration made Al-Shary felt like he had secured success, believing his career starts from Egypt.

Al-Shary said, “I was born in Al-Saragna Castle, the town that made me love Sufism songs as there were lessons to teach Sufism songs with Andalusian character.”

He mentioned that he learned these types of songs from Sheikh Ali Al-Rabahy, Moroccan singers’ president and other figures.


He said that his first band was created 1998 when he was 15 years old. This band wandered around Morroco and became famous because of its own character and style; it mixed between western music character and Moroccan heritage.
