Prominent Iraqi singer Kathem El Saher is currently busy filming the episodes for the new television program "Ma La Ta'rifonah An Kathem El Shaher" (What You Don’t Know About Kathem El Saher) for the Arab satellite television channel MBC.
According to the London based Elaph, portions of the program have already been filmed in different places between Cairo and Paris, and the remaining portion is to be filmed in London during the singer's trip.
Kathem is scheduled to hold a grand performance at the Albert Royal Hall in London on March 14, sponsored by the Melkonian Foundation and for which all proceeds will go directly to needy children in the Middle East.
MBC is in charge of filming the episodes of the program, and television announcer Nancy Ma'mari will be presenting/hosting the singer.
Kathem recently took part in the Doha Seventh Music Festival. During his stay in Doha the singer was honored as the ‘Best Arab Singer’ by the Al Raya newspaper.
The Iraqi satellite channel filmed a special interview with the singer to be aired in the near future. Kathem gave several interviews to Qatari satellite channels and was honored by the Qatar local television channel as well.
El Saher is scheduled to film a new music video for the song "Intaha Al Mishwar" (The Journey is Over), written by Aseer El Shouq, that will mark the fifth clip he has filmed under Jordanian director Hussein Du’aibis.
El Saher refuses to hold any negotiations with the Egyptian Opera House after the theatre banned him from performing for the past two years.
