NEW Farha Band

El Layali el Helwa - led by Ahmed Mahrous

We are very excited to announce a new band for the Farha Tour in Luxor. Orchestra leader, Ahmed Mahrous, has an international reputation and his band are second to none!

All orchestra members are accomplished musicians with great reputations in the Cairo dance world. Together, they make an unbeatable combination.

This is an amazing opportunity for all our participants to take classes with this incredible orchestra and for some dancers to rehearse and perform with them.
