Worldwide performances of the EJP include Royal Albert Hall, The Egyptian Art Academy in Rome, Dubai Opera, Cairo Opera House and as part of the 2018 and 2019 London Jazz Festival.

Ahmed Harfoush is an Egyptian jazz vocalist based in London who appears at leading venues and events throughout Europe and the Middle East. His repertoire is extensive, including traditional American jazz and swing, musical theatre, Arabic songs and contemporary hits.
