CAIRO – 9 October 2017: Dalida tribute band will perform as part of the "Dalidays Program" held by the Institut Français d'Égypte on October 19.
The tribute band consists of Mariam Mounir, Wagdy al-Fiwy, Mohamed Wave, Mohamed Kennesh, and Abdallah al-Asabgy.
Dalida was famous for singing in multiple languages, including Arabic, Italian, English, Hebrew, Greek, and most importantly French. The restaurant's DJ acknowledges Dalida's role in adding the flavor of the Arab culture to France’s mainstream, as reported by the National Emirati website.
Dalida is a highly recognized music icon, especially in France. There is a street in Paris named after her in the neighborhood where she used to live. With her impressive repertoire of songs in many languages, Dalida remains to be a widely acclaimed and cherished singer.
“She is still very popular and famous in France and there are talent shows such as "Star Academy" and "The Voice" that still do Dalida songs,” said Anne, the French singer who commemorated Dalida by singing her songs during the homage.
Also, in 2016, a French movie called "Dalida" was produced to commemorate her success with music and her personal life.
