Swiss Trio Simon Spiess is taking part of the second edition of Jazz Tales’ festival in Alexandria and Cairo. The Trio will play in a joint concert with Egyptian band Eftekasat on April 13, at Bibliotheca Alexandria, and at Sawy Culture Wheel (Cairo) on April 14.

Following the success of the 1st edition in 2017, The Arts Center, Bibliotheca Alexandria, launched the second edition of the Festival this April, in collaboration with El Sawy Culture Wheel in Cairo, to continue reviving the Jazz music in the Egyptian cultural scene.

Trio Simon Sipess will also share their experience with Egyptian young musicians and amateurs in a collective workshop in Alexandria.

“The Simon Spiess trio invites the listener in with strong melodies, carefully attended by bandleader. One is met with a clear feeling of dedication and attention to every detail as the trio floats on a lively grid of the dusty sounding rythmsection. A beautiful broad sounding album that shows great promise for the future of this young Swiss trio” – Mikkel Ploug

Location: Bibliotheca Alexandria, Great Hall

Time: 20:00 hrs
