Ali Al Hajjar Sings in the Gulf Accent
The Egyptian singer Ali Al Hajjar has decided to sing for the first time in his long singing career in the Gulf accent. He will sing two songs, the first composed by Abdulla Al Ruwaished and written by poet Ali Musaed, and the second composed by Suleiman Al Mulla and written by the poet Khaled Al Bthal.
Hajjar who is currently on a visit to Kuwait to perform in his musical
“ Bullet in the Heart “ said that he had previously sung an Arabic song written by the poet Prince Abdul Rahman Ben Musaed. He added that both Rwaished and Mulla’s songs would represent his first experience of the Gulf accent.
Al Hajjar was cited by Al Sharq Al Awsat News Agency as saying that he had planned to exploit his visit to Kuwait well, so he participated in a TV soiree which will be broadcasted during the Sacrifice Feast holiday, and he also appeared in a number of live TV programs. He was interviewed by the Kuwaiti press many times, and he wants to end his visit by singing in the Gulf accent.
Responding to a question as to why he has chosen Rwaished and Mulla as composers for his new gulf songs, Hajjar said that his attention has recently been drawn by the duo formed by Rwaished and poet Ali Musaed and he was enthusiastic to cooperate with them. He added that he has also listened to songs composed by Mulla and Bthal who have succeeded with many Arab singers such as Diana Haddad. He therefore decided to collaborate with them in order to enrich his new album and ensure that his songs reached the largest possible Arab audience. Albawaba.com
