In a nutshell

An immersive visual art and music experience of classical Arabic songs and movies.

Go on...

Love and Revenge is a live music and video performance by the musician Wael Koudaih (Rayess Bek) and the video artist Randa Mirza (La Mirza).

It revisits the old Arab popular songs and Egyptian movies from the golden era of Cairo’s Studio Misr and remembers stars such as: Samia Gamal, Tahia Carioca and singing idols Leila Mourad and Farid El Attrache. Watch the drama unfold on screen with clips from these bygone movies, whilst on stage the musicians create a soundtrack to transport us through the drama, love, pathos, and tragedy of the films.

Rayess Bek's remixes and La Mirza's visuals are joined by the bass of Julien Perraudeau and the electric oud of Mehdi Haddab.

What to Expect

A combination of visual art and remixing of classical Arabic songs and movies that invites an immersive experience with a strong nostalgic element, especially for enthusiasts and those familiar with the music and films of Egypt’s ‘Golden Era’.
