This is Cairo's female drummer
who wakes people up every day at dawn during Ramadan
for a customary pre-dawn meal before a long day of fasting
Hajja Dalal Abdelqader marches to the beat of her brother's drum
who was a "Mesaharati" for almost 25 years
(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) RESIDENT OF NEIGHBORHOOD, MOHAMED ABU SEREEA, SAYING:"We've known her for the past five years since she started coming here. She's such a decent woman, we wait for her to pass by and don't wake up except after hearing her lovely voice."
