I discovered a free Classical Arabic music event every Wed night 7pm Free
Arabic Music Salon every Wednesday night, which is great to just listen to live music. Sakhir Hattar is the director, it's basically just a free concert. the musicians are all men over 50, so they are very experienced, and they play the old classical style, like Oum Kalthum stuff with Ney, Violin, Darbuka, Riq, Kanoon, Oud, etc etc
To get there, ask a taxi driver for:...........................
Hashmi a-Shamali (the neighborhood), Hadiqat al Amir Hashim (Amir Hashim park), areeb min (near) Anabtawi Halawiyat (ababtawi sweets shop). When you get to the Anabtawi sweets shop, you follow the street a little further, then turn right at the park, then left at the first street, and there will be an entrance into the concert! in the park
I'm trying to make a google map point for this but I can't find it. (anyone know where Amir Hashim Park is on Google maps??
