Egypt 1: Cairo Soundscape

Hip Deep’s Egypt program series kicks off with a sonic tour of Cairo–the chatter of car horns on jam-packed streets, the persistent call to prayer broadcast from mosques city wide, koranic recitation, radio sounds, nightclubs, Ramadan concerts, Coptic hymns sung in ancient churches, bustling markets, and the lulling waters of the Nile.
