Egyptian singer and actor Khaled Selim will perform a concert at the Alexandria Opera House’s Sayed Darwish Theatre this Thursday amid the summer programme.
Selim will introduce some of his memorised originals like ‘Ana Habbeit’, ‘Alam Tany’, and ‘Balash Al-Malama’, as well as recent single ‘Ashemni’ — which was released last month — and last year’s ‘Elli Fat Mat’, among other originals, in addition to a selection of traditional covers.
Born in Kuwait but currently living in Egypt, the 45-year-old Selim shot to fame with ‘Eish’ (‘Live’), the theme song for ‘El-Sellem Wi Al-Te’ban’ almost two decades ago. Selim has produced several popular albums in addition to starring in various films and TV series.
The summer programme’s upcoming concerts at the same venue feature Ali El-Helbawy on 8 August, Carmen Soliman on 15 August, SoundTrack on 20 August, and Ali El-Haggar on 22 August.
