The greats of music and singing in North Africa

By: Sameh Selim- member of US Press Agency

Art critics and specialists always talk about appreciating the new and unique state of the art that changed the way and path of traditional art to another track and suddenly turned into a state of new artistic creativity away from the old classic style and changed the form and content and changed with it the view of art criticism of this prestigious creativity until it turns from a state local to a regional phenomenon and then to the global.

And we will start with you the story from its inception in North Africa in the late sixties and early seventies when an international artist of Algerian origin named Enrico Massis appeared, and he was able to combine oriental music, traditional instruments, western music, and its modern western instruments in the French language. In this region, starting from North Africa to the global creativity that emerged from France, whoever lived through the generation of the seventies and eighties is well aware of what I am saying because this period was a new age stage from North African arts to the world through France, the bastion of international arts at that time.

Also, in this period, there was a great creator named Abdel Halim Hafez, or as Arab critics called him, Frank Sinatra, but he was a regional artist in the Arab region because he was not fluent in foreign languages.

Then we come in the eighties and nineties. He is one of the greats of North Africa and its creators, the artist Hamid Al Shaeri, who sings, composes, distributes, and brings artists to light and fame. He entertains us and an entire generation through his distinguished artistic production, which relies on a more Western form and rapid rhythm, so it affected his creative and public sweep in an unparalleled style in this region of the world.

As for music, apart from singing, we mention the creative international musician Omar Khairat and the creative Egyptian musician Hani Shenouda and Michelle Al-Masry. One, but in the end, if you want to reach the world, you must speak the world's languages
