Brief, and in some cases incomplete, stories of magic from ancient Egypt.
In this 3rd episode on Sayyed Darwish, let’s look at one of his most famous songs, قوم يا مصري, once again written by بديع خيري – a “patriotic” song with a difference. In it, Egypt talks to the Egyptians ahead of the 1919 revolution, reminding them of past glories, and reprimading them for what they have done to it in recent times. The version we’l…
As I said in the only just published Episode 25 (on the life of Egyptian composer and singer Sayyed Darwish), I have now launched Bilmasri on YouTube, and I think this episode in particular is worth watching on there. That’s not to say you should abandon the podcast!! But because this episode is about extracts of Sayyed Darwish songs, having the so…
Sayyed Darwish 1892-1923 – his Biography With this episode, I’m very excited to be launching Bilmasri on YouTube! As I explain in the podcast, how and where you use Bilmasri is up to you (of course :)). Some may find it works best for them to listen to the podcast on the go, or to listen to it while reading the text in the blogpost, but others may …
In this third episode dedicated to regional Egyptian accents, I chat with Moustafa Maghraby from the southern Egyptian city of Qena. Qena lies just to the north of Luxor, and as Moustafa explains, both accents are very similar (although the north of Qena bears more resemblance to the city of Sohag). Thank you Moustafa for the informative chat! As w…
Today’s episode is another collaboration, and this time I was delighted to team up with Hector Fahmy, a fellow “Masri” enthusiast who runs the العالم بالمصري Facebook page, which aims to bring the world to the Egyptian reader (so you could say, the reverse of the direction Bilmasri operates in!) by translating a variety of content -texts, music etc…

In this first of hopefully a series of episodes, I wanted to introduce you (and myself!!) to a number of regional Egyptian dialects. Because – let’s face it – Bilmasri isn’t really bilmasri if it stays as Cairo-centric as I am! And so I’m teaming up with Egyptians from across the country to talk about their dialects/ accents, and how their sounds, …

Earlier today, we lost one of Egypt’s foremost feminist writers and political activists, Dr Nawal El Saadawi (born 1931). A uniquely courageous woman who inspired so many, women as well as men, to stand up against their oppressors. Her outspokenness landed her in prison under Sadat’s regime, and this is where in 1981 she wrote “مذكراتي في سجن النسا…
