CAIRO – 9 November 2017: Egyptian Sufi band Waslet Sama’ will perform at DA House on Friday.
Founded in 2014, Waslet Sama' presents magical chants that praise God through repeating the name of Allah and enumerating God's given gifts; in addition to chants that praise Prophet Mohamed using religious poetic sonnets such as “Nour Allah, Ya Sayed” (God’s Light, Master).
It covers numerous iconic Sufi music compositions for acclaimed chanters such as Nasr el-Din Tobar and Sayed al-Nakshabandi.
Revival and rediscovery of heritage are the main targets of Waslet Sama’s members as they follow the chanting style of the early generation of chanters.
Previously, the band performed many live concerts at El-Sawy Culture Wheel and Al-Rab3.
Last April, the band presented a new experience as they performed a concert with the Malaysian Sufi band Identity.
Waslet Sama’ consists of many chanters, including Nour Allah Sayed, Mahmoud Ali Helal and Moustafa al-Shafe’y, in addition to many musicians such as Hisham Lotfy on flute, and Yasser Moustafa on oud.
