Video Clip: Saad in Cairo

Because my NYU class just finished a routine to a song by Saad, I wanted to share this clip. I saw him perform in an intimate nightclub (Cairo's Semiramis Hotel 2007) with a cast of at least fifty extras. He was in the middle of shooting a film and he recreated the feeling of the movie. His music is "shaabi," which means something like "my people" and is a bit earthier in tone. This particular show was jazzy and exuberant with an abundance of brass and dancing.
