The Slavic Soul was presented for the first time in the Arab world. The venue was the most prestigious hall in the Middle East - The Cairo Opera House. Benjamin Izmajlov orchestrated new songs for this occasion and conducted the Cairo Symphony Orchestra. The reaction of the audience was amazing and the final encore (Manca Izmajlova sang the song Alf leila wa leila by the legendary Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum) brought the hall to a standing ovation. It was truly a great evening, full of emotion and great energy!
