Music is therapeutic. A magical homogony of different sounds that connect with your emotions whilst awakening your senses. Does your soul seek good music? In celebration of spring, the fourth edition of Contemporary Music Days will be enlightening the music scene from the 27th of April until the 4th May. The series of musical nights put on by the European-Egyptian Contemporary Music Society are designed to boost the contemporary music scene by continuing to push for the participation of international and local artists.

Interestingly, some of the performances will be improvisations where the artists react to visual cues. There is a clear gravitation to art as a whole this year by creating discussion and connecting like-minded musicians. On the 28th and 29th of April, composers Oscar Bianchi from Switzerland and Zaid Jabri from Syria will kick start a number of activities one being an exchange of ideas and opinion on the issue of the barriers that composers are facing to incorporate Arab instruments in contemporary world music.
