Darb 1718 Contemporary Art & Culture Center and Cairo Jazz Club Agency have always had a common interest in taking on any projects which generate a sense of culture and originality through art. “Our entertainment program includes art exhibitions, crafts workshops, diverse bazaars, storytelling, as well as theatrical and musical performances to ensure that there is something for everyone and to generate a wholesome Ramadan experience” explained Ahmed Al Fekky, Cairo Jazz Club Agency’s event manager. Mawaweel was held at Darb 1718, Egyptian Contemporary Art and Culture Center, who also hosted and co-organized the event in 2010 where it received wide media coverage and support. “Darb 1718 has long been a platform for many talents. We like to think of it as Cairo’s little art community” said Reem Hatem, PR manager of Darb 1718, explaining why they took interest in hosting Mawaweel.
 
 
Each Thursday in Ramadan 2012, Mawaweel  opened its doors from 9:30pm for visitors to browse through the art exhibitions and crafts workshops. Guests also mingled and interacted while enjoying a good selection of oriental food and beverages until the performances begin at 10:30pm.
 
On the first night Thursday 26th July, 2012 Massar Egbari was the main act, shedding light on societal and governmental pressures with their meaningful but lighthearted lyrics mixing different musical styles ranging from alternative Egyptian and oriental music, to rock, jazz and even blues. Next up at 12am, Mawlaweya presented their peculiar ‘Transcendence Ritual’ performance taking the audience on an enlightening journey through the basic roots of Sufi rituals.
The second night Thursday, 2nd August, 2012 featured Basheer as the main act. Basheer, who originates from Upper Egypt, Aswan uses his cultural roots, blending sounds from the Ja’ffary heritage along with some western instruments, to produce a brilliant concoction of oriental sounds with modern fusions, creating a new phase of Upper Egyptian Folkloric music. Mawlaweya then stepped up with their enchanting ‘Sufi Jazz’ performance to acquaint the audience with the elation brought about by jazz music and how it links to the Sufi heritage.
The final night Thursday 9th August, 2012 featured a story telling session by Abeer Soliman, using her expressive persona to disclose the tale from the last night of the infamous ‘One Thousand and One nights’ tale. The main act, Ashara Gharby took to the stage from 11:00pm using their diverse musical backgrounds, voicing the average Egyptian’s thoughts through authentic fusions of oriental sounds, blues and afro jungle beats. Last but not least Mawlaweya dazzled the crowd with their final ‘Tannoura’ performance of vibrant colors & art of whirl dancing.
