On a personal mission to promote peace through cultural exchange, Egyptian-born Canadian artist Chantal Chamandy returns to her native country to perform an extraordinary concert at the majestic Pyramids of Giza and Great Sphinx, accompanied by the Cairo Symphony Orchestra and her troupe of ten dancers. This marks the first time ever a concert was permitted to be filmed at the base of the Pyramids on the Giza plateau and offers a breathtaking, illuminated view of the last remaining wonder of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Visually enhanced by striking choreography, elegant staging and a dynamic light show, the concert includes an emotional rendition of “Somewhere” from West Side Story, two traditional Arabic songs (“Salma ya Salama” and “Helwa ya Beladi”), and Chantal’s original compositions (â€œYou Want Me,â€ â€œPeace,â€ â€œLet’s Talk About Youâ€ and many others). Filmed September 7, 2007, the performance features guest appearances by the Egyptian National Ballet Company, Tanoura dancers, a Darbouka drum band and an Egyptian marching band.
