CAIRO – 9 August 2017: You must feel tired by now of all the singers and songs that are being sung and danced to by everyone! The mainstream is getting ferocious, and all songs either say “I love you” or “you’re like the best girl eva’”, same music, same dance moves, it is getting dull, it is time to find something meaningful.

What about a relatable song that expresses a fear of commitment you might have experienced or are experiencing at the moment? Or a mixture of Arabic folk songs with Spanish music? A really genuine original song that does not need models or even colors to deliver its message, or a song expressing sadness over a lover you know you are about to lose...

The Arabic music scene has so much more to offer than you would ever imagine and today we brought you 5 amazing musicians that are always trying to raise the bar and do something creative while tackling problems we actually suffer from, to the extent that we do not need to introduce them, we will let their music do the job for us:

1- Jadal - Ana Bakhaf Min El Commitment

With a unique upbeat and an almost too quick to understand lyrics this song and clip illustrate the fear of commitment and inability to take a decision that a lot of us suffer from these days.

2- Hamzah Namira (ft. Ramon Ruiz) – Youman Tatabna.

This magnificent mixture of Egyptian and Spanish vocals and music is just bound to amaze you

3- Aziz Maraka - Meen Gallek

His deep voice, simple style and well-chosen lyrics will leave you no choice but to listen

4- Akher Zapheer - Akherto Lahen Hazeen

Not only the music is so good but the video clip and lyrics also tell a melancholic story in such a beautiful way.

5- El Far3i – Tghayarti

He did not need cut scenes, models, change of scenery or even colors, as his voice and guitar are all he needs to deliver his message.

Yes, we know there are so many others to be mentioned and that is why we will be making you more lists of special music that might not be getting the attention it deserves! Please let us know your favorite Bands, Singers and songs in the comments.
