Algerian singer Warda has begun holding extensive working sessions with numerous Egyptian composers and poets to choose the songs for her first album after a two-year absence. The singer had received the green light from her doctors to resume her career after undergoing liver transplant in France and successfully surviving the surgery, reported the Egyptian based weekly, Al Nogoom.
The singer stressed that she intends on making a strong comeback and is careful on the kind of songs she chooses for her new album wanting to present her audience with the same standards and even better than they were used to.
Warda had announced plans to return to the music world, after regaining her health and taking time off relaxing in Algeria. The singer denied previous rumors that she had left Egypt to live in Algeria on a permanent basis. Warda reestablished her old contacts in Egypt from the music industry in order to set herself up properly and begin work on a new album. The singer revealed that her stay in Egypt will be a long-term one, and denied all rumors of ending her career, at least for the time being. Warda dismissed all recent circulating rumors she had received orders from doctors to stop singing.
Born in Paris to an Algerian father and Lebanese mother, and living most of her life in Egypt, renowned diva Warda holds more than two hundred songs throughout her singing career. She cooperated with great composers in her life, like Riad Al Sonbaty, Baligh Hamdy, Mohammed Abdul Wahab, Sayed Mekkawy, Mohammed Al Mogy, Farid Al Atrash, Helmy Bakr, and many others. –Albawaba.com
