“I am delighted to meet you in Cairo,” multi-award-winning singer Chamamyan posted on her social media platforms, inviting fans to attend her concert which she promised would be “a special Ramadan night.”
With his ensemble, Chamamyan will perform traditional covers as well as many originals from his four albums – ‘Asmar Ellon’ (2006), ‘Shamat’ (2007), ‘Ghazl El-Banat’ (2013) and ‘LAWNAN’ (2016) .
Chamamyan, 41, is known for her soprano voice and a unique style that fuses jazz, Middle Eastern folk music and Western classical music.
She sings in Arabic, Armenian and other languages such as Syriac, English, French and Italian.
Chamamyan rose to prominence singing for a number of TV series like ‘Nizar Qabbani’ and films including ‘Grandma’s Tattoos’ (a Swedish-Armenian film) and ‘Behind the Mirror’ (an Algerian-French film).
The event will take place at the Théâtre de la Fontaine, where a series of events are taking place this month to celebrate Ramadan, including performances by Ali El-Haggar (Friday 15), Ghalia Benali (Monday 18), Yassin El-Tohamy (Wednesday 20) and Medhat Saleh (Saturday 23).
