Treat yourself with an evening of exquisite jazz on Friday May 24, 2013 at El Sawi Cultural Centre in Zamalek with the Amro Salah Trio featuring Australian singer Michelle Rounds. Concert starts at 7:00 PM.

In the end of 2010 Pianist/Composer AMRO SALAH decided that it’s about time to perform his Jazzy ideas and compositions in public! Putting together his first Jazz Trio with 2 of the finest Jazz musicians in Cairo, Ehab Tass (Bass), also a life mate playing together since teenage years, and the“ technically shocking drummer ” Ahmed Hesham who’s at the same time the drummer of EFTEKASAT .
The Trio gave its debut performance at the Wisdom Hall in SAKIA inviting Jazz Vocalist Noha Fekry who appears frequently with the trio as a guest. The rare combination of such musicians has led hopefully to pleasant results of Jazz that mixes new age, acid and classical with Oriental, Latin and Bebop turning each live show to an exotic voyage.
Amro Salah Trio has performed at Cairo Jazz Festival in 2011 and 2012 with the Dutch legendary drummer Han Bennink , also performed at Cairo Opera House with Italian Singer, songwriter, actress and percussionist Elisa Nocita.
Musicians: Amro Salah: Piano, Ehab Tass: Bass, Ahmed Hesham: Drums, Michelle Rounds: Guest Vocal

MICHELLE ROUNDS is renowned throughout Australasia and the Pacific as one of their finest jazz vocalists ever, and has released numerous albums both in collaboration and on her own. Michelle has presented many jazz concerts throughout the world and is admired for her courageous and versatile scatting, more in the form of instrumental voice solos – she has a very wide vocal range and continually delights her audiences with the creativity expressed in this range – Michelle is a very fine and creative jazz singer of all styles - ballads, latin jazz, swing, be-bop, Mississippi Delta Blues, blues and waltzes.
Coming from a family of musicians, Rounds grew up surrounded by the sounds of music, growing up listening to Julie London, Marion Montgomery and Nat King Cole. It is her exuberant presence, confident, funny, and comfortable that is reflected in her performance. Her body language, swinging smoothly with each melody, sweeps her audience from one field to the next.
