Sharkiat by Fathy Salama will give a Cinema Electronica 2 concert – Music – Arts & Culture

“We will be playing new compositions that I recently wrote specifically for this concert, including a piece that I named ‘Zanfool’. This concert will be different in terms of an original electronic approach,” the winner revealed on Sunday. a Grammy Award to Ahram Online.

Cinema Electronica 2 will feature new oriental jazz electronic arrangements of Salama’s compositions for film soundtracks, such as El-Mosafer by Omar Sharif by director Ahmed Maher and Gannet Al-Shayaten by Mahmoud Hemida by Oussama Fawzi.

“This is the second concert of this project [as the first was in October 2021]. The sound of the concert will include the use of dialogue material from the films aimed at putting the audience in a certain mood,” Salama added.
