Om to play “At Giza” at the foot of Egyptian ruins

Since Al Cisneros set forward on a path from Sleep to Om, the band has been on a fascinating trajectory. Now the band will revisit their hypnotic-classic Conference of the Birds which is divided amongst two tracks, the first of which is “At Giza”, clearly a nod to the great pyramids at Giza. The band have announced that they will play all of a version of the track “At Giza” in what may be one of the most perfect of locations, on July 19th in front of the remains of the Temple of Dendur at the Metropolitain Museum of Art. Sounds unmissable if you are anywhere in the NYC area, tickets are on sale.

All other tour dates, and a stream of Conference of the Birds is below.
