El Dor El Awal
El Dor El Awal around 2003 Ahmed Omar and Mohamed Sami met for a spontaneous jam, not knowing that the tunes improvised that day would be the seed of their next big music project. A few days later Omar brought in Mizo and Bob who shared the stage with him in another musical project Wust El Balad to share the journey of finding that resonant, evocative sound.
Daily for six months straight the members gathered at a small first-floor apartment in Cairo to jam, improvise and Rehearse aiming to bring the unnamed project to life. When the goal was finally achieved the members decided to honor the time spent in that small apartment and call the project EL Dor El Awal (First -Floor).
