Mahraganat 4 ALL

A rapidly growing Egyptian music genre, Mahraganat, is a form of public folklore that has appeared and spread recently among commoners in a very rapid pace. Unfortunately, this popular music genre has been a highly dominated male-production industry. All the leading Mahragant singers and composers are men. Our project seeks to fill in the gender gap in this music industry by training and producing Mahraganat songs by young women including a research on the topic itself “women in Mahragant music”
