Ali el-Haggar to perform at Heliopolis Library’s Theater

Fri, Dec. 8, 2017
CAIRO – 8 December 2017: The veteran Egyptian singer Ali el-Haggar to perform a concert at Heliopolis Library’s Theater on December 18 in celebration of the launch of his recent album “Ma Takhdy Balek” (Please Take Care).

El-Haggar announced that he will perform songs from his new album at the upcoming concert.

He will also be performing some of his classic hits such as “Hona al-Qahera” (Here is Cairo), “A’m Batata” (Uncle Batata), and “Dehket al-Masagen” (Prisoners’ laughter).
Moreover, he will sing a collection of his iconic soundtracks such as “Bawabet al-Halawany” (Halawany’s Gate), “Al-Mal wal Banon” (Money and Sons), and “Masa’let Mabdaa” (A Matter of Principle).

El-Haggar graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in 1979 and was influenced by the late Egyptian music legend Baligh Hamdy, who trained el-Haggar along with Mohamed Mounir and Mohamed el-Helw in a band called el-Takht that was formed in the Arabic Music Institution.

Inspired by poet, cartoonist, and painter Salah Jaheen, el-Haggar always wanted to sing the late artist’s sonnets; he grew popular after performing them in the 1980s. Around the same time, he also began blending authentic Arabic music with new technologies and sound effects.

In addition to his prolific album releases, el-Haggar has also performed in several theatrical plays, movies, and television shows.
