Love and Revenge is a live music and video performance by the musician Wael Koudaih (Rayess Bek) and the video artist Randa Mirza (La Mirza).
It revisits the old popular songs and Egyptian movies from the golden era of Cairo’s Studio Misr. Featuring stars such as: Samia Gamal, Tahi Carioca and singing idols Leila Mourad and Farid El Attrache.
Watch the drama unfold on screen with clips from these bygone movies, whilst on stage the musicians create a danceable live soundtrack to transport us through the drama, love, pathos, and tragedy of the films.
Rayess Bek’s remixes and La Mirza’s visuals are joined by the bass of Julien Perraudeau and the electric oud of Mehdi Haddab.
Produced in partnership with MARSM with additional support from Alaraby TV Network.
