CAIRO - 8 July 2019: Famed singer Assala Nasri will perform in Saudi Arabia on July 11.

Assala performed in Saudi Arabia on June 8 in celebration of Eid al-Fitr.

Nasri will perform a selection of her most popular songs, such as; “El Haqiqa” (The truth), “Soal Basit” (A simple question), “Boadak Ani” (When you are away from me), “Ya Magnon” (You’re crazy), and “Min Fina” (Me or you?), among others.

Nasri’s lastest song "Bent Akaber" achieved millions of views on YouTube.

Assala was born on May 15, 1969 in Damascus, Syria to a middle class couple. Mostafa Nasri, Assala's father, was a revered composer and singer.

She began her musical career by performing patriotic, religious and children's songs when she was four years old.

In 1986, Mostafa Nasri died after suffering from internal bleeding caused by a car accident.

Aged 17, Assala helped care for her siblings, Reem, Amani, Ayman and Ayham with her mother.

Her musical career started in 1991 with an album that included four songs. In 1993, she became famous after releasing her album "If You Know".

The album had four Egyptian songs of the oriental classic Egyptian tarab style. The album was an instant hit in Egypt back at that time with heart-breaking songs like "Ya Sabra Yana" and "Samehtak Ketir".

She quickly cemented her presence in the Arab world's growing industry brimming with singers like Angham, Najwa Karam, Latifa, and Abdel Majeed Abdullah.


Nasri, 48-years-old, is one of the most popular singers in the Arab world and is famous for her strong, melodious voice; she is the daughter of late Syrian artist Mustafa Nasri. Since the beginning of the Syrian Civil war in 2011, Nasri supported the Syrian rebels and strongly opposed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Nasri released numerous successful songs throughout her career, such as “Ya Magnoon” (Oh Madman), “Shakhsya Aneeda” (Stubborn person), and “Tasawar” (Imagine), among others. She is married to famous Egyptian director and producer Tarek el-Erian.

The famous Syrian singer won the Best Arab Singer award from Dear Guest Awards.

Nasri received the award on her album “Mohtama bel Tafaseel” (Concerned with Details), released in 2017.

She sang the theme song "Qessas Al-Sho'oub", of the cartoon show “Hekayat Alamiyah”.
