CAIRO – 19 March2018: Renowned Egyptian singer Ali el Haggar will perform a concert in El Sawy Cultural Wheel on March 28.
Haggar graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in 1979 and was influenced by late Egyptian music legend BalighHamdy, who trained Haggar along with Mohamed Mounir and Mohamed el-Helw in a band called el-Takht, which was formed in the Arabic Music Institution.
Inspired by poet, cartoonist, and painter Salah Jaheen, Haggar always wanted to sing Jahin's sonnets; he grew popular after performing them in the 1980s. Around the same time, he also began blending authentic Arabic music with modern technology and sound effects.
In addition to his prolific album releases, Haggar has also performed in several theatrical plays, movies, and TV series.
Haggar is expected to perform the songs of his recent album “Ma TakhdyBalek” (Please Take Care). He will also sing some of his classic hits such as “Hona al-Qahera” (Here is Cairo), “A’mBatata” (Uncle Batata), and “Dehket al-Masagen” (Prisoners’ laughter).
Moreover, he will sing a collection of his iconic soundtracks such as “Bawabet al-Halawany” (Halawany’s Gate), “Al-Mal walBanon” (Money and Sons), and “Masa’letMabdaa” (A Matter of Principle).
