I got more information about Sandro Schneebeli & The Egyptian Connection at MAKAN on Thursday December 20, 2012 at 9:00 PM.
Here is MAKAN's press release of the event:

When guitarist and composer Sandro Schneebeli came to Egypt to perform in Art Beat 2012 Music & Art Festival, he fell in love with the country, its people, and its music. This week, the experimental musician comes back for another endeavour to explore more of Egyptian music, injecting its oriental sounds into his compositions. In collaboration with his "Egyptian Connection": Mohammed Medhat on Violin, Ahmed Nazmi on Bass, and Ahmed Hisham on Drums, Sandro Schneebeli promises an unforgettable evening of his original World Jazz compositions, infused with the unique flavors of the East.
