Middle Eastern Music, Drum and Dance Holiday in The Sinai, Egypt and Musical and Cultural Tour Of Cairo. Each year we take small groups to the Sinai to learn about the Music, Dance and Drumming found across the Arabic/N.African/Turkish countries. Accommodation and tuition takes place at the wonderful RockSea Camp see http://rocksea.net/cms/content/view/1... Run by a German couple with many years experience living and working in the Sinai and employing Bedouin staff, the Camp affords a very tranquil experience of staying in the Sinai on the Gulf Of Aqaba overlooking Saudi Arabia and has it's own private Coral Reef to explore. There are daily classes in Middle Eastern Dance with Carmen Jones - see http://www.raqsarabia.co.uk Arabic Music with Maren Lueg - see http://arabicmusicband.com and Arabic Percussion with Chas Whitaker - see www.arabicdrum.co.uk
Several excursions and day trips are available e.g. Camel rides and overnight stays in the desert, trek up Mount Sinai, walks through the Coloured Canyon etc. Evening entertainment involves local musicians visiting to play concerts after delicious meals in the Bedouin tent. Accommodation is in huts made with mainly organic materials and different styles are available.
We also arrange a cultural and musical tour of Cairo which follows straight after the Sinai. Accommodation is in a very affordable Art Deco style Hotel in Downtown Cairo. There are many, many trips and events which can be arranged in Cairo and the itinerary is flexible depending on participants wishes. These can include visiting music shows on a nightly basis e.g. The Makan Centre - see http://www.egyptmusic.org/index.htm l or Cairo Opera House or shows in Islamic Cairo - the list is endless for live music events. Visiting shows with dancers e.g. a floating boat cruise on the Nile with live band and dancer e.g. to see Lorna Gow - The UK's only resident dancer in Cairo - see http://bellylorna.blogspot.com Guided tours through the hustle and bustle of the extraordinary markets and nightlife of Downtown and Islamic Cairo where you will experience a true authentic experience of Cairo. Day trips to see the Pyramids, Egyptian Museum, Coptic Cairo etc. etc. We will show you the music shops and help you buy top quality instruments or guide you safely through the bustle of Khan el Khalini the Tourist shopping market.
