Ensemble members – including Ahmed El-Nogly, Ahmed Nafee, Hisham El-Rifaei, Ahmed El-Rifaei, Islam Mahmoud, Sarah Ibrahim, Zeinab Taleb, Ahmed Nabil, Islam Mahmoud, and Zein El-Abdeen – have created a special programme for the concert, featuring Imam's most popular songs.
These will include Oum Ya Masri ('Get Up Egyptian') and El-Bahr Beydhak Leih ('Why Is the Sea Laughing'), to name only a few.
