Last Monday evening saw the Egyptian Project perform in a free concert at the Jardin Tino-Rossi, a sculpture garden down by the river. While tourist-filled boats plied the water and discharged their passengers on the dock behind the stage of the Franco-Egyptian band, the musicians belted out pulse-pounding rhythms.

The idea for the creation of the band was sparked after French singer and music director Jérôme Ettinger had worked with a number of musicians of different styles and traditions for a number of years. The result is a fusion of traditional Egyptian songs and instruments into a modern style that incorporates trip-hop (downtempo electronic music), hip-hop, and jazz.

It was a powerful performance and the first of a series of free outdoor music concerts sponsored by the city of Paris this summer.
