Abdel Halim Hafez
Come together to celebrate the works and life of one of the most famous musicians, the late Egyptian Abdel Halim Hafez. Experience magic as this tribute concert showcases some of the jazz icon’s best songs with an all-new laLatinond jazz sound.
Why Watch The Abdel Halim Hafez Tribute
Also known as ‘Al-Andaleeb Al-Asmar’ or ‘The Black Nightingale’, Abdel Halim has always been an icon in the Egyptian jazz music scene. In fact, his songs are considered to be absolute masterpieces that deserve a place alongside compositions of some of the greatest contemporary Arab poets and composers. He performed in nearly every country in the Arabian region, and even earned massive acclaim for his performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London. His style was primarily based around swing and traditional jazz, Arabic music, and musical theatre. This tribute concert does justice to his work and recreates the irresistible atmosphere of a quintessential Abdel Halim Hafez concert.
Hosted at the Dubai Opera on the 3rd of November, this incredible revival of the legendary Abdel Halim Hafez’s songs is sure to be an electrifying show. Led by London-based vocalist and jazz specialist Ahmed Harfoush, the tribute will feature performances by the HarfousH Jazz Band. The show will have re-works of the most famous Abdel Halim Hafez songs from the 50s and 60s adorned with modern latino and jazz additions as a part of ‘The Egyptian Jazz Projekt’ by Harfoush.
“Even forty years after his death, the music of the legendary Egyptian singer lives on in the hearts of Arabs”
