The master drummer Sayed Balaha from Cairo looks back to an artistic career of alomst forty years. Already in his early childhood he discovered the fascination and variety of the Middle Eastern rhythms for himself. This didn't remain secret to his family and to his environment and so he already had his first concert appearance and in the Egyptian broadcast in the age of eight years. From then on, he could be very often heard in the radio, (when it was still played live). After some years, Sayed Balaha was a well-known Tabla virtuoso and collaborated with almost all dancers of Egypt accompaning them on their tours on the whole world. After an appearance in Frankfurt in 1988, he was asked by the society of German-Arabian friendship, to come to Berlin as a teacher of Tabla and dance. Afterwards in 1989, in Berlin he founded the group EGYPT STARS with which he appeared at innumerable festivals and concerts in Europe in Berlin.
All productions are stamped by the knowledge and the experience from years of work on the stage and as teacher and for good the music periodical "Rolling Stone" described Sayed Balaha "King of the ultimate Middle Eastern Grooves”.
