Mr. Nagi has been an active performer and presenter of Arab music and dance in the United States for the past two decades. He has represented Egypt at regional Arab festivals in Michigan, Milwaukee, Virginia, Massachusetts, and California. He is the founder of the Arab Dance Seminar, running 14 annual events around the USA. Mr. Nagi has also performed over 400 public school assemblies since 2001, introducing young audiences to Arab cultural arts in a campaign against stereotyping and racism. Internationally, Mr. Nagi has performed Egyptian dance and music in prestigious venues such as the Shanghai Oriental Theater, Theatre du la Ville in Paris, the National Theater in Verazdin Croatia, and venues in Colombia, Poland, Taiwan, Japan, and Indonesia, to name a few. He has also recorded 14 CDs, distributed internationally and on iTunes. For the Embassy Series, Mr. Nagi and his accompanists will perform Egyptian traditional and contemporary music on instruments that have ancestral equivalents in Ancient Egyptian times. www.karimnagi.com
The Embassy Series has worked with over 200 ambassadors, hosted over 600 concerts in 73 different embassies involving more than 800 international artists from 84 countries and over 300 artists from the D.C. area. By extending public access to the embassies in the Nation’s Capital, the Series offers its audience the opportunity to participate in a cultural exchange – to watch and listen to a musical performance that highlights the contributions of a particular country. Such a backdrop allows the audience to “get a feel” for the nation being represented, which is key to promoting and celebrating the diversity of both a host embassy and Series patrons.
