Lebanon’s classical vocalist Majida Al Roumi will return to the music scenes after a three-year absence. After her long absence Majida decided to return to the recording studios to work on her upcoming new album.
According to the Egyptian weekly Star magazine, Majida plans to record and shoot one of the album’s song entitled “Hal Tasma’ani” (Do You Hear Me) before releasing her tape in the next upcoming days.
On another note, last week Majida performed a special concert in Beirut with proceeds benefiting the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Al Roumi was elected FAO’s Ambassador from Lebanon earlier this year to go on a fact-finding tour about the people’s conditions in a number of Arab and African countries to report them to the organization officials. The tour is scheduled to start at the beginning of next summer.
Majida Al Roumi is the daughter of singer/ musician Halim Al Roumi, a well-known composer for the Rahbani brothers. Surrounded by artists and musicians ever since her childhood, Majida Al Roumi started singing for family and friends at an early age. Like so many others who are now famous singers, she had her breakthrough in Studio Al Fan in 1974 – Albawaba.com
