The Amman-based design and advertising agency, ND Productions, simulated a performance by iconic Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum at the launch event of MBC Egypt, which took place in October in the prescence of a large group of Arab actors, musicians, and filmmakers.

The video was released on YouTube last week.

ND Productions restored footage from a 40-year-old recording of the singer, putting together the first live hologram on a Middle Eastern stage.
