Renowned Egyptian singer Ali El-Haggar will perform this Thursday in Alexandria as part of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina Art Centre's 18th International Summer Festival.
El-Haggar, 66, who has released new singles and online concerts recently, will be singing some of his famous TV series themes and most memorable hits.
El-Haggar has been one of the iconic singers in Egypt and the Arab world in the past four decades, collaborating with some of the leading Egyptian lyricists, such as Salah Jahin, Abdel-Rahman El-Abnoudy, and Sayed Hegab, in addition to some of the country's renowned composers from Baligh Hamdy and Sayed Mekkawy to Omar Khairat and Fathy Salama.
The Bibliotheca Alexandrina's 18th Summer Festival, dedicated to late Egyptian folk-dance icon Mahmoud Reda, is seeing a variety of various art forms, with the remaining music events including concerts by Andromida (25), Nouran AbuTaleb (26) and Mostafa Awar (29) on the last day of the festival.
Cultural events and activities in Egypt were resumed last month as part of phase one of the country's reopening after the COVID-19 shutdowns. All events are being held under strict measures that include social distancing, obligatory masks, and sanitisation.
Thursday 27 August , 9pm
Bibliotheca Alexandrina- Arts Center, Alexandria
