Ammar Dajani

Music - 2013
A musician and music manager, he is one third of the trio that founded Cairo Jazz Club in 2001. The venue, the first of its kind in Cairo, is recognized as the nucleus of today’s vibrant and diverse Egyptian independent music scene. With the partners' involvement in the scene extending well beyond the Club itself, satellite activities and services were formalized in 2010 under the CJC Agency, Cairo Jazz Club's event organizing arm and "live music experts". Dajani was also a founding partner of Studio 32, Cairo's first quality rehearsal studio and music environment. His background is in management and marketing communications, and was once himself an active musician on the independent music scene.
