CAIRO – 23 July 2018: Famed Tunisian artist Ghalia ben Ali will perform a concert at the Roman Theater in Alexandria on July 23 as part of Cairo Opera House's Summer Festival. Ben Ali studied art in Belgium and then found herself mesmerized with the multiculturalism of the Middle East.

She grew up listening to the voices of Umm Kulthum and other Arab legends, and watching Arabic films that later contributed to her understanding of the multiple Arabic cultures and philosophies.

She embarked on her artistic journey and released her first album in the late 1990s. Her album “Ghalia Benali Sings Om Kalthoum”, released in 2010, attracted various Arabic youth to enjoy the classical strong lyrics of the famous Umm Kulthum and to discover ben Ali.

Ben Ali participated in Citybeats Music Festival which kicked off on June 4 in Paris. Being the first Arab music festival in Paris, Citybeats Music Festival hosted in its first edition three Arab music stars: Tunisian Ghalia ben Ali, Egyptian Maryam Saleh and Palestinian-Jordanian singer El-Farei.
