Event description: Led by violinist Sami Abu Shumays, Zikrayat (translates as "memory") specializes in smoky, evocative music from mid-20th century Egyptian cinema. Shumays, who studied both Western classical music and Arabic maqam, and the other members of Zikrayat, combine Arabic instruments like the nay (end-blown flute) and buzuq (long-necked flute) with violin and percussion to produce their own take on forgotten Egyptian films.
