El Dor El Awal is not your typical Egyptian band.
Even its formation is unusual. Two percussionists that play an original set with bongos, congas, kakhon, tabla and elements from the drums, a keyboard that uses a piano sound as well as electronic effects to add colors to the music. And finally a flute,
a violin, and a saxophone, that create a very particular brass section.
Blending in their different musical backgrounds and adding each their personal touch, El Dor El Awal have truly succeeded on creating their own personal style and constantly delivering some fresh tunes that make their way straight into the hearts of the audience.

Ahmed Omar (Electric Bass)
Mohammad Samy (Violin)
Bob (Kajun, Djembe,Various Percussions)
Fadi Bader (Qanun, Keyboards)
Mizo (Konga, Doff, Tabla, Various Percussions)
