ARRGGHHH!!! I can’t believe I only just heard about this!!! I hadn’t heard a whisper through all the usual belly dance channels. Thank you Houda for letting me know. If you were unaware too – here is goss. He’s in Sydney Feb 2nd at the ANZ stadium. Belly dance Show, Sword fighting show??? I haven’t heard who the artists doing this part of the evening are but I am sure tempted to go. Sounds like a lot of fun.
Who is he?
Seriously, if you are into belly dance and haven’t at least heard of him then …. well I just don’t know what to say!!
This from his bio
“Amr Diab (Amr Abd-Albaset Abd-Alaziz Diab), born on the 11th of October 1961 in Port Said, Egypt, he is an Egyptian Singer, he is known as the Father of Mediterranean Music. He has created his own style of music, which is a blend of western and Egyptian Rhythms. His songs are translated in to 7 different languages and sang by different artists worldwide”
“Amr Diab’s domestic life is just as rewarding as his musical career, married to Zeina Ashour, his children are Nour (girl), the twin Abdu-Allah (boy) & Kinzy (girl), and Jana (girl). The father Amr Diab is a great family man, who dedicates his time to his family.
Amr Diab’s hard work and passion to creating quality music and new stylized musical techniques was his ultimate aim throughout the years. He has certainly and clearly delivered to all his multi-national fans around the globe and proved that he is one of the best Middle Eastern singers with extraordinary talent, determination, charisma and charming appearance.”
To be honest he is not my favourite Arabic musician to listen to but to look at , that’s another story 😉
