CAIRO – 13 May 2018: Famed Egyptian singer Medhat Saleh will perform a concert at Cairo Opera House on June 4 as part of Cairo Opera House’s Ramadan concerts.
Saleh was born in Cairo in 1960 in Shobra district. He started his musical career directly after he was graduated from Cairo University. He released his first song, entitled “Akeed” (Sure) in the 1980s. He performed his song named “Ya Greed el Nakhl el Aly” (O high palm leaves) in front of former Egyptian President Hosny Mubarak in mid 1980s, where the song achieved a booming success, placing Saleh among the top singers at that time.

Throughout his career that extended for more than 30 years, Saleh was famous for performing the songs of the most successful movies such as "Habiby Ya Ashek" in “Short w Fanla w Cap” (Shorts, a T shirt and a Hat) movie, "El Nour Makano Fel Keloob" ( Light is in the hearts) from “Amir el Zalam” ( The Prince of Darkness) movie, “La Hatakhod Eih” ( What Will You Take?) from the movie "Mafia", among others.
