Below is another of my favourite, I never can get enough listening to it.
Just a short introduction about the singer if you guys haven't heard of him.
Amr Diab born on October 11, 1961 is an Egyptian singer and composer of jeel music; the contemporary face of Egyptian al-jeel pop music, according to World Music, and the most popular singer in the Middle-East. Diab has endured as the best-selling Arab recording artist of all time, according to Let’s Go Egypt. He was awarded “The World Music Award” 3 times; 1998, 2002 and 2007, as being the best selling Middle Eastern singer.
Amr Diab is known as the Father of Mediterranean Music. He has created his own unique style known by Arabic music lovers as “Mediterranean Music”, a blend of Western and Arabic rhythms.
In The Mediterranean in Music, David Cooper and Kevin Dawe referred to his music as “the new breed of Mediterranean music.”
In Mediterranean Mosaic by Goffredo Plastino, and in Some Meanings of the Spanish Tinge in Contemporary Egyptian music, Amr Diab has produced a new concept of Mediterranean music, especially in his international hit, Nour El Ain.
In the analysis of The Very Best of Amr Diab, Victor W. Valdivia , said: “His music melded traditional Arabic sounds and textures with Western rhythms and instruments. The mesh was dubbed Mediterranean music, and The Very Best of Amr Diab displays Diab’s superb skill in creating it.
