Tunisian artistes Leila and Jebali to perform tomorrow

February 14, 2019

The Royal Opera House Muscat  (ROHM) is presenting a wonderful celebration of the best classical Arab songs of all time, songs that resonate with audiences to this day. 

Tunisian singer, Leila Hejaiej performs classic Tunisian Malouf, an evocative genre derived from Andalusian classical music dating from the 15th century.

Leila will also interpret songs from legendary Arab singers such as the early 20th century Syrian-Egyptian singer, Asmahan, and the ever-famous Egyptian icon of music, Mohamed Abdel Wahab and the ever-famous Lebanese icon of music, Fairuz.

It’s a great combination as Leila Hejaiej is joined on stage by the popular Tunisian singer, Mohamed Jebali who is celebrated for his superb interpretation of the songs of one of the greatest Arab singers ever - Abdel Halim Hafez.

Although he died in 1977, Abdel Halim Hafez’ recordings are still tremendously popular, with sales reaching 80mn to date. Leila Hejaiej and Mohamed Jebali will perform Timeless Arab Songs on one night only - Friday, February 15 at 7pm. “You are well-advised to book early as this is an evening that is sure to sell out quickly,” the ROHM said in a statement.
