It is with deep regret we have to announce that the tour with Mazaher Ensemble has been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. Therefore the concert at ALICE is also cancelled. We’re working on a new date in the future. All ticket holders for the show at ALICE will get their tickets automatically refunded via Billetto.
We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to see Mazaher Ensemble in Denmark soon.
Mazaher is one of the rare ensembles in which women play a leading role and are connected to a most ancient tradition practiced in several countries in the region. The musicians of Mazaher are among the last remaining Zar practitioners in Egypt. The music presented by Mazaher is inspired by three different styles of the Zar music in Egypt. Zar is a community healing ritual of singing, polyrhythmic drumming and dancing whose tradition is carried mainly by women (men have the second roles) and whose main participants are women. It’s distinctively different from other Egyptian music traditions. This Autumn, Mazaher Ensemble will play a rare Danish concert at ALICE bringing their newest album out on Ajabu! Records.
