    Hello!

    Does anybody know the name of this song? I know that it's Hakim's song, but does anybody know the exact name?

    EDIT: Of course I forgot to add the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=386MbjGXhCs

    Oh yes!

    This is Hakim (he's...well used to be one of the most famous sha'bi (sort of?) singers here in Egypt)

    The song is called Albi Ya Ho - by Hakim it's worth noting that the video clip attached to the song isn't actually the song's video clip. It's the video clip of his song Habouso (Rough translation: I'll kiss him, note that him doesn't mean he means a male lover, but usually when referring to your loved ones in Arabic you call them your beloved 'Habibi' which is in itself is considered a masculine word so it's common to refer to your loved one (female) as a he...complicated stuff :P)

    This is his Wikipedia page

    Pretty much all his stuff are perfect for belly dancing

    If he has lost his position, who is the most famous nowadays? Or has the trend changed to other styles than sha'bi?

    That's exactly what I thought when I first read this, but changed my mind about asking because I probably don't want to know.

    HAKIM IS #1 TO ME!!!

    Well I can't say he 'lost' his position, he just has disappeared off the face of the earth for the past year, no new songs/singles/albums/video clips...etc.

    The trend has indeed kinda changed, although his songs will remain very popular as he has his own style, as his was more folkloric mix with Sha'bi than what is considered Sha'bi here in Egypt.

    As for Sha'bi, well the current trend came up when uhm, Sha'bi class? (I noticed that you guys call them that here) people started getting DJ gear and adding a few words and drum solos to a certain tune for people to dance on in baladi weddings.

    Like those guys, who are technically the most famous now (I kinda don't like their 'songs' if you could even call them that, but they somehow manage to get people off their butts to dance)

    I do believe that's always what has been considered Sha'bi here, but so were Hakim's songs and people who did his kind of music, so you could say both are two sub genres in the sha'bi genre. Both still very much exists (IMO nothing as good as Hakim's stuff) but the Oka and Ortega stuff are more common now.

    Thanks, I see.
    Keeping oneself on top of the charts and in the news while producing new material is certainly an art in itself..

    Judging by the example above Oka w Ortega is certainly not my cup of tea. I hate that kind of processing of the human voice (also in western music).
