Hassan Abul Saud Ready with Surprises
Egyptian composer Hassan Abul Saud flew to Paris a few days ago to record music for new songs, including Hani Shaker’s Daa’wet Farah (Invitation for Joy) and Asalah’s Absat Huqouqi (the simplest of my rights).
In response to criticism over recording in Paris, Abul Saud said the city “has the most spacious studios in the world, large enough to host 90 musicians at one time. Besides, they contain state-of-the-art techniques that are not offered in Egypt.”
He told the Egyptian daily Al Masaa that he has recently finished with a number of other songs to be performed by prominent Arab singers. These include Shaker’s Ana Mehtaglak (I need you) written by Bahaa Eddin Mohammed, Bahaa Sultan’s Lao Tihebbini Olli (If you love me, say it), and Alaa Abdel Khaleq’s Enti Mate’rafish Al Hobb (you don’t know what love is) written by Mohammed Mustafa and Min Bihebb Al Tani Aktar? (Who loves the other more?), written by Ahmed Shita.
Abul Saud has also finished composing Bahaa Eddin Mohammed’s lyrics Matigrahnish (don’t hurt me) which will be performed by a newcomer, Shireen, who Saud introduces as “a surprise who will send us back to the time of Faiza Ahmed and Nagat, by her ‘warm’ voice.”
The musician has written music for TV series songs such as Asfour Taht Al Matar (sparrow in the rain) written by Abdel Rahman Al Abnoudi and will be performed by Mohammed Al Hilo, and Al Khaizaran written by Ahmed Shafiq Kamel, to be performed by Tunisian singer Lutfi Bushnaq – Albawaba.com
