Dangerflow, an American hip hop group from Miami, will hold a series of performances in Cairo and Alexandria within the framework of the US Department of State’s American Music Abroad (AMA) program, the US embassy in Cairo said.
This program is the second in the embassy’s “Al-Hakawatya” series, featuring storytelling through music, following the successful collaboration between American artist Chelsey Green and Egyptian artist Dina El Wedidi in 2017. Dangerflow will blend their unique fusion of hip-hop, R&B, rock and Latin percussion with the sounds of Egyptian popular music.
Dangerflow will perform at Al-Azhar Park on April 13. A free performance open to the public will take place at Misr University of Science and Technology on April 16.
While in Cairo, the group will conduct workshops with Egyptian musicians and exchange ideas with Egyptian youth on how music can inspire, uplift, and empower communities, and encourage the next generation to make positive choices.
Dangerflow will collaborate onstage in Cairo with Ahmed Sheba, Sawarekh, Tarek El Sheik, and Mai Abdel Aziz. Dangerflow will also travel to Alexandria for a concert in collaboration with more Egyptian artists, and other activities from April 17 to 20.
The American Music Abroad program sends talented American musicians around the world as Cultural Ambassadors for multi-country tours where they engage with international audiences through public concerts, interactive performances with local musicians, jam sessions, workshops, and media interviews.
Since the famous American trumpet player Louis Armstrong visited Egypt in 1961, the US embassy has highlighted collaborations between American and Egyptian musicians through various programs and activities.
