WELCOME TO 2013 ... and CAIRO JAZZ CLUB in January

Welcome to 2013 from CLEG!
Hope this year will bring lot of good news and opportunities for Cairo's artists and art lovers. It is always good to remember that by going to a performance you will not only have a couple of good, entertaining hours but you will also support the artists and enhance your understanding of local culture. No matter if you end up eventually liking it or not, time spent at an art event is never wasted. That's my thinking!

Back to business now. We start the new year postings with a venue that has been around for a long time and constantly been both a great place to spend an evening in and also provided behind and on scene support to many local musicians. The Cairo Jazz Club January programme features the usual array of established bands plus a scattering of emerging ones. Just as an example, this coming Thursday January 10 the hilarious musical duo HIGH ON BODY FAT returns on stage at 8:00 PM performing their trademark comical songs, while on Sunday January 13 at 9:00 PM LOS COMPADRES will bring to Cairo some Hispanic heat with their rhythmic Cuban jazz arrangements.
