Maha ElNabawi (Cairo / Egypt)
Saturday, 4 November, 12:00 & 15:30, Konzertsaal, #Symposium, Sonic Talk & Panel
Through her sound driven lecture, Egyptian cultural journalist, publisher and writer Maha ElNabawi will travel through seminal artists, spaces, and events in Cairo discussed in her essay, The cacophony of Cairo – A battle of narratives. Initiated by Goethe Institute, the essay is part of the collective book Ten Cities, which brings together 20 writers across 5 African cities and 5 European cities to present a sociological and cultural study through the lens of dance music and club culture (to be published in early 2018). Maha ElNabawi has co-founded the independent publishing endeavours Mada Masr and Discord Music Magazine and published much of her work in Wire, Guardian, Spex, The National and Mada Masr.
