Posted By MiOd On Tuesday, August 27, 2013 Under ,

Biography: Hossam Ramzy was born in Cairo, Egypt to a very prominent Egyptian family which emphasized education and art. Ramzy's musical career began at the age of three when he was given his first drum, an Egyptian traditional tabla. Hossam was encouraged by his artistic family to master his craft and studied under leading Cairo music teachers. When he moved to Saudi Arabia he joined several Bedouin tribes which gave him a rich insight into the cultural origins of Middle Eastern music and became the inspiration for many of his later rhythmic directions. In the mid-1970s Hossam moved to London, England and enjoyed a lot of success as a jazz drummer, working with many respected jazz musicians including Andy Sheppard and Geoff Williams. As he began looking for new dimensions of percussive sounds, he turned back to Egyptian Drums, and traditional dance rhythms of the Middle East. Hossam also creates many new sounds from the old traditional grooves and Arabian & North African samples and loops using his state-of-the-art digital studio in London. Hossam's No. 1 hit Edony that topped the dance charts worldwide in 2001. His percussion, North African string arrangements and exciting rhythms caught the attention of Peter Gabriel who invited Hossam to perform on Passion and later Us. Hossam collaborated on eleven albums with Peter Gabriel since 2001. Hossam worked with many musicians including Joan Armatrading and Mary Wilson. Hossam creates string arrangements and percussion, and produces many songs for world artists such as: Yesim Salkim, Celick Erici, Khaled, Tarkan, Rachid Taha, Faudel, The Gipsy Kings and Youssou N'dour.

Om Kolthoum was born in Egypt to a family of singers. At 5 her voice was talked about all over Egypt. Later Om Kolthoum sang a live concert every last Thursday of the month and all of Egypt gathered around their radios to hear her and be enchanted by her songs. All the top Egyptian composers have composed songs for her. She was called "Kawkab El Sharq" (the Shining Star of the Middle East).

Oum Kalthoum, c l'essence même de la musique orientale. Elle vous fait vibrer dès les premières paroles même si cette magnifique langue qu'est l'égyptien n'est pas toujours comprise. C'est la langue de l'amour, de l'espoir, de la déchirure parfois mais de la vie et Kalhoum la manie avec une grâce vocale inégalable qui fait briller mes yeux, reflet de cette star.
