Ehky Ya Masr A Tale of a Drum and a Song: Exploring The Mesaharaty

“A Tale of a Drum and a Song: Exploring the Mesaharaty” by Shaza Walid, @shazawalid. Perhaps the first thing to come to your mind when you think about Ramadan is family gatherings, syrupy desserts, colorful lanterns and of course ... the mesaharaty. In this episode, Shaza Walid takes us on a journey to explore the history of the mesaharaty and his iconic drumbeat and special songs. But it’s not the story of a man this time, as it has always been over the past decades. Listen to Shaza’s feature to know about the story of the most prominent female mesaharaty in Egypt. “A Tale of a Drum and a Song: Exploring the Mesaharaty” is a part of the Ehky Ya Masr إحكي يا مصر Ramadan series.
