Mohamed Mounir, The King

Updated on November 5, 2011

Mohamed Mounir. He's one of the most famous Arab and Egyptian singers and almost the only one with alot of popularity in the western countries in comparison with other Arab singers. He was born in October 10, 1954 in Aswan (south of Egypt). His Nubian roots has affected his music markedly.

Mounir plays several types and genres of music mixed with african/nubian style sometimes, some of his songs are considered Reggae, Jazz, Blues and sometimes Rai, Pop and some classical Arabic music too!

The uniqeness of his music and the warmth of his voice, the lyrics of his music (deep, political, romantic,etc) together with a very strong charisma on stage qualified him to be... The King (the name was given to him from his fans). As a fact mounir is standing his ground and keeping himself no.1 since 1977 (his first album) untill now (2009). More than 30 years of hard work, Mounir is also choosing the composers and poets he deal with very carefully just like his band members.

He gained several names and titles by his fans: the Son of the Nile, The Voice of Egypt and, the King. His lyrics are controversal, political, talking about humanity, sadness and happiness, hope, home, philosophy and religion!

He took part in some International tournaments and concerts in Spain, Germany, and Austria singing to the Arabian community abroad living there and to the citizens of these countries who can enjoy and understand his music even if they can't understand the lyrics, World Music in simple words...

After the Sept. 11 attacks, Mounir felt that it's his duty to conduct the right message about Islam to the western world as alot of people in the west saw Islam as a religion of terror and intolerance, so he realeased his album : "Earth....Peace". The album was surprisingly religious to such a champion of secularism.

These are some of Mounir videos and songs from concerts, I hope you enjoy it :
