In the second edition of his ‘INVITE’ series, Ali Omar El-Farouk invites Nadine El Seragy with the lovely operatic voice to perform together a beautiful selection of Arabic songs from the 20th century, starting from the 20s all the way to the 80s. Their repertoire includes songs by great figures such as Sayed Darwish, Mohamed Abd El Wahab, Abd El Halim Hafez, Asmahan, Om Kalthoum, Fairuz, and others. In their first-time collaboration, this duo pays tribute to some of these classics in their original traditional style, while others are reinvented with more contemporary arrangements. A performance not to be missed! 🎵🎶🎤🎸
