From the land of pyramids, pharaohs, and papyrus, we bring you a look at Egyptian culture past and present. Grab a cup of mint tea, fire up the hookah, crack open a novel by Naguib Mahfouz, play some songs by Abdel Halim Hafez, or put on a movie starring Omar Sharif and join us while we share recipes, music, jokes, videos, and current events from Egypt.

How could I not choose a song with the same name as The Amazing Egyptian Dude? It's got a great rhythm, some nice "scenery," and ought to inspire everyone to put on a hip scarf and start shaking that belly!


  1. Excellent. I enjoyed this very much :)

  2. I forgot to say that I played an accordion growing up and the beat was great on this :)
