Egyptian singer Ali El-Haggar will perform a concert in the Royal Opera House Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman on February 1.

El-Haggar is expected to perform the songs of his recent album “Ma Takhdy Balek” (Please Take Care). He will also sing some of his classic hits such as “Hona al-Qahera” (Here is Cairo)، “A’m Batata” (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 wal Banon” (Money and Sons)، and “Masa’let Mabdaa” (A Matter of Principle).

El-Haggar graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in 1979 and was influenced by the late Egyptian music legend Baligh Hamdy، who trained el-Haggar along with Mohamed Mounir and Mohamed el-Helw in a band called el-Takht that was formed in the Arabic Music Institution.

Inspired by poet، cartoonist، and painter Salah Jaheen، el-Haggar always wanted to sing the late artist’s sonnets; he grew popular after performing them in the 1980s. Around the same time، he also began blending authentic Arabic music with new technologies and sound effects.
