Welcome to the adventures of the "Drummers of the Nile", part III. After their southbound journey to the Nubian roots they are back in town, as strong as ever. Join Mahmoud Fadl as he walks down Cairo's Mohamed Ali Street, the famous musicians' hang-out, where he meets up with master drummers Mohammed "Kallo" Sobhi and Magdi Berbish, the Khalil family (flag-bearers of Saidi musicianship) and the legendary Hasaballah Brass Band, the one and only brass band in Egypt. It's a hot time in the old town tonight!
