dc.descriptionFive times a day in the 83 square mile city of Cairo, over 30,000 muezzins call out the adhan, or call to prayer, calling believers to come and to pray. This Maghrib (sunset) adhan was recorded on the Qasr el-Nil Bridge, which spans the Nile River in central Cairo. It connects downtown Cairo to Gezira Island and the Zamalek district. The recording captures the voices of the muezzins of Cairo, all of whose calls begin a few seconds apart from one another. The muezzins calling from far away mosques and mosques closest to location can be heard: please control the volume accordingly.en_GB
