A week filled with roses, stuffed teddy bears, and lots of happy couples on social media is enough to make you see red —not because it is the colour of Valentine’s Day, but because you are single during what is now known as “cuffing season”, according to pop queen SZA. We are here to support our single readers in standing firm against all the corny temptations that this season brings, and in hopes of keeping you too busy to text your ex, we’ve gathered events that can distract you and make your weekend worthwhile!


Karavan Sarai & Egyptian Project at Cairo Jazz Club

Finally, heading back to the stage of CJC is Karavan Sarai. Their masterful technique of reviving old tunes fuses the soul of ancient rhythms with musical impulses and movement. Egyptian Project will then tune in to end the night with their renowned Sufi sounds!

Ashmawy & Sebzz at Cairo Jazz Club 610

Meet others who love good music and partying as much as you do, and maybe you’ll find someone you could call your soul mate one day at CJC 610 this Thursday. Ashmawy and Sebzz will play an explosive B2B set that will keep you on the dance floor all night. If you don’t end up falling in love, you’ll at least fall in love with the music!
