The concert organisers revealed that the event will be “very different” from all performances given by the superstar over the past decades.
The organisers added that apart from his well-known and beloved repertoire, Mounir will also sing a new composition, without providing more details.
The last time Alexandria hosted Mounir was 12 years ago when he performed a concert in a private setting.
For several decades now, Mohamed Mounir has carved himself a special place in the hearts of Egyptian listeners, while his fan base goes far beyond his home-country’s borders with concerts staged across the globe.
Mounir has embraced the Nubian musical culture and the Egyptian creative traditions at large since the launch of his career in early 1970s. To many, The King (as his fans refer to the singer) is a household name, speaking to generations and attracting large crowds to his live performances.
With lyrics often based on the work of famous poets, Mounir sings about social and human issues, family and friends, tradition, the country and its people. While doing so, his creative malleability allows him to feel comfortable in small formations as well as with an orchestral setting where the traditional tunes meet a variety of other genres.
Throughout his decades-long career, Mounir released over 20 albums while giving frequent performances in Egypt and the region.
