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.If he has lost his position, who is the most famous nowadays? Or has the trend changed to other styles than sha'bi?
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.If he has lost his position, who is the most famous nowadays? Or has the trend changed to other styles than sha'bi?
Thanks, I see.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.
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).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.
Oh no, I'm still in the inbetween where I would definitely dance to the music because it is really really catchy. I'm definitely more of a Hakim fan as well.@Munniko, don't get me wrong, they're famous for a reason. I've gone to some of their concerts, and the sure do know how to move a crowd, me included. When it comes to bellydance, I'm more of a Hakim type of music fan
well, I would suggest trying to do it on Bassem Yezbeck's drum solos. Mario Kirlis is good to but with shimmies, Bassem Yezbeck is amazing.I need some audios (drums or else) on which I could practice my shimmy from slowest to fastest. Something like this:
Belly Dance Moves: Hip Lifts and Basic Shimmy - YouTube - somewhere around 1:15
Thank you SO much!well, I would suggest trying to do it on Bassem Yezbeck's drum solos. Mario Kirlis is good to but with shimmies, Bassem Yezbeck is amazing.
He's famous (at least here) he's famous for his drum solo "Tablet Bassem"
If you can shimmy to that, you'll be able to shimmy to anything, (that's a common saying here about Tablet Bassem) Hope that helped :3
Aww, awesome! Let me know if I could help in anyway!! I got so many songs I would love to know what they are saying, though I don't know for sure what language they are in. I'll try asap to get them listed here for you. I prefer to know what the lyrics are saying before I dance to them. LOVE the way they sound.
