Samaa' Group for The Spiritual Songs & Coptic Hymens (Message of Peace)
The group was established at 2009, with an initiative by the artist, Ensar Abdl-Fatah when he decided to establish an elected group for chanting (Message of Peace) to reflect all religious heritage kinds in Egypt aiming to maintain the Egyptian identity & assert its uniqueness. In order to achieve that, he set a letter to his holiness Pope Shenouda III, Pope of Alexandria & Patriarch of the See of St. Mark. At that time, Pope was ardent of the band & had great interest in its philosophy; he sent the reply to its institutor by his agreement & blessing to that band.
The group consists of some deacons of the Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in El-Abaseya, under the leadership of Anton Aiad, the son of the great scholar Ibrahim Ayad, & includes a group of distinguished voices who present the heritage of the Coptic hymens throughout the centuriesSessions :
