People that contributed ti this documentary: Karim Omar Hassan, a young electro-Chaabi music producer and also a political science student at AUC. Shahir Nakhlah, a live sound engineer and a professor of Music Technology at AUC. Rana Gabr, the organizer of the Chaabi Festival recently held at AUC and also an Economics student at AUC.
