Rawi is an annual privately published, bilingual (English/Arabic) magazine on Egyptian history and heritage based in Cairo. Our beautifully photographed articles, contributed by experts in every field aim to ignite our readers’ passion for history, archaeology, architecture, art, and more.

Rawi was founded in November 2010 and is published by Yasmine El Dorghamy.

The Rawi is the Egyptian storyteller, the raconteur, earning a living from the country’s oral history. As the Rawi began to tell a story, people would gather around to listen. If it weren’t for the storyteller, many legends would have been forgotten.
