Um Kulthum

As proud Egyptians in 2020, we’ve always enjoyed reminiscing on past singers of our culture whom are now not amongst us, may they rest in peace.

Egypt is well know for our infamous singers that are truly loved worldwide. You would think that it’s just us but believe it or not, everyone enjoys ancient Egyptian music.

With that said, we are proud to have amongst us one of the world’s well know and dearly missed singers, Um Kulthum. Her unique and powerful voice has stayed with us for all these years, even after her passing.

It’s been 44 years since she left us, but luckily we have many ways we could listen to her melodic songs. The internet has definitely made it way easier to look for whatever you want, especially music. From Anghami, to Spotify, and even Youtube, you name it!

Which is why we are super excited to tell you the amazing news! You actually get to witness a live concert of Um Kulthum! How? Isn’t she dead? Well that’s the thing! Egypt brings to you one of it’s very first Hologram Concerts, and what better way than to start off with an Egyptian Legend, Um Kulthum!

The concert will be held at the Cairo Opera House on the 6th of March in the Grand Theater. Fortunate for us, this concert is in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture to help create a vivid and powerful experience for us to have a genuine feeling of how things were back in the 80’s!

Dr Inas Abdeldayem, the Minister of Culture, is excited to be incorporating advanced technology as well as modern methods to be capable of allowing us to relieve old Egyptian artists. She states that this is a smart tactic that will hopefully attract the younger generation to their culture and history.

The concert will be directed by Jihan Morsi as well as a musical band that is to be lead by infamous Maestro Mostafa Helmy alongside Mai Farouk and Reham Abdel Hakim. These people are well known for performing songs by the legendary Um Kulthum.

Yes indeed this is the first hologram concert in Egypt but it is not the first of it’s kind! Dubai and Saudi Arabia had already initiated hologram concerts, Dubai being the first ever to create such an idea! Rumor has It though that Egypt has had a hologram concerts before but only during the World Youth Forum!

Even after all these years, everyone has a passion towards Um Kulthum. Today, she is still considered Middle East’s most admired singers!

We all can’t wait to attend such a historical event happening amongst us. The upcoming show truly gave everyone hope that they have a second chance to finally see the woman who had challenged social norms as well as became a major historical symbol.

Check out the video before when Dubai had done their first hologram concert ever. This is so surreal!
