Photo of the Day

In this Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013 photo, Egyptian music instrument technician and piano tuner Khadr Dagher, 65, sits inside his music shop on Mohammed Ali street, a street modeled after Paris’ boulevards and home to musicians, belly-dancers and instrument makers, in downtown Cairo, Egypt. The shops making, repairing and selling musical instruments that once packed the street are disappearing, along with their window displays of lute-like, stringed ouds, qanouns   and tablas -- a drum made equally for the rapid-fire hand beats of belly-dance tunes or for the languid rhythms of a love ballad by Umm Kalthoum, the most famed singer of classical Arabic music.
