El Tanbura’s second album, produced by the El Mastaba Center for Egyptian Folk Music in Cairo features studio renditions of the band’s most requested songs from their weekly concerts at Port Said’s Negma Café. The disc also marks the recording debut of Hassan El Ashry’s unique multi-stringed Simsimiyya.

Material from the album can be found in the soundtrack to Philippe Dib’s film “El Tanbura: Capturing a vanishing spirit”.
