Souvenirs de 'Abdel Halim Hafez
Aswat, the Bay Area's premier Arab music ensemble, features the music of the iconic 'Abdel Halim Hafez (1929-1977) in their first sing-along concert.  

'Abdel Halim is known in the the Arab world as "Al Andaleeb Al Asmar"(The Great Dark-Skinned Nightingale), "The King of Arab Music", "The Voice of the People", "The Son of the Revolution", and "The King of Emotions and Feelings".  Such titles are but a testament to the Arab world's affection and regard for 'Abdel Halim's contributions to Arab culture and music, and for the man himself. One might liken 'Abdel Halim's stature in the Arab world to Elvis Presley's in America.  'Abdel Halim passed away some 36 years ago, but his legacy endures.  Anybody even just slightly acquainted with Arab music is familiar with 'Abdel Halim.

The concert will cover Abdel Halim's most popular hits.  Lyrics (Arabic) are available at <http://zawaya.org/site/?p=3296> and will be projected onscreen during the concert.  It will be karaoke en masse - an experience that promises to be as moving and as memorable as the beloved 'Abdel Halim himself.
