CAIRO – 11 November 2017: Silent film “The Child”, by the great cinematic icon Charlie Chaplin, will be screened on November 22 at Madar, featuring one of the recognized works of Chaplin accompanied with a live piano recital performed by Egyptian composer Mohammed Nagla.
Nagla aims to recreate old visual art with new elements of sound; he has cooperated with many artists, such as Yasser Rostom who held an art gallery accompanied with special composed music, and sculptor Samya Monsef who displayed her statues previously at Palace of Arts.
This influential experience was hosted in different cultural occasions, such as Damanhour Opera House and Cairo Opera House.
Having impressive composing talents, he remixed many folk songs and hits, such as “Ya Masr O’my” (Egypt, Rise), and he reintroduced a number of Salah Gahen’s poems. He also composed an original soundtrack for “The Child”.
Nagla will also play a live piano recital during the screening of
“At Land” (1946) and “A Trip to the Moon” at Magnolia Leaves of Art this month.
