Megastar، Ali El Haggar، and singer Nehal Nabil performed Wednesday evening at the Arabic Music Festival 27th session، which runs from November (1-12)، at Cairo Opera House، in Zamalek district، Cairo governorate.
He performed a number of his famous songs as well as golden age songs.
The evening was kicked off by the performance of singer، Nehal Nabil، followed by El Haggar.
The 27th session is named after late Egyptian actress and singer، Shadya.
This year’s session will feature 43 concert performances given by Arab world’s most prominent figures، including، Egyptian singer Ali El Haggar، Lebanese singer Ramy Ayach، Tunisian superstar Latifa، Renowned musician Omar Khairat، and others.
Noteworthy، Ali El Haggar joined the Faculty of Fine Arts and was graduated in the year 1979، according to El Sawy Culture Wheel.
Fortunately، he met with one of the most influential characters on the journey of many Arab artists، the late genius musician (Baligh Hamdi) who was then the training supervisor of Ali El Haggar، Mohammad Mounir and Mohammad El Helw in the Eastern Takht band of the Arab Music Institute.
Ali El Haggar had a wish since his childhood to sing the quartets of the late poet، painter، actor and writer Salah Jaheen، and after a considerable effort from the latter to convince the late musician، Sayid Mekkawi، the composer of the quartets and the first to perform it، and with the talent of Ali El Haggar، Sayid Mekkawi had agreed and Ali El Haggar had sung it with great success which lead to his proliferation، and made him one of the most important singers in the middle generation.
Ali El Haggar succeeded to self-achieve himself in the 80's by releasing the album ("Fi Qalb Elleil" or "in the heart of night") intending to create a turning point for the Egyptian song on the modern musical performance level making use of the new technologies and on the semantic musical level in the composition of both Moodi Alimam and Ahmad El Haggar aiming at librating the poetic templates of colloquial Egyptian lyrics.
At that time، he realized with his acclaimed judgment that impropriety has become more aggressive in invading the public song. In this album، Ali El Haggar tried his best to resist those songs that started to seep into the conscience of the listener intending to abuse it.
He، then، achieved great success in releasing his albums and sharing in many theatre plays TV series and movies.
Ali El Haggar is a long journey of creativity، excellence، sophistication and simplicity.
He had also acted in a number of movies and TV series and is most famous for his role in TV series “Bawabat El Halawani”. He had also sung a number of TV series soundtracks including “El Shahd Wa El Domooa” and “El lel W Akhro”.
