A look into the Arabic pop scene.

Do you remember Hits from the Caïro-Beiroet pop scene in the year 2006? Now we are already in the year 2008. Time to take another look at the current Arabic pop scene. Giant Rotana brings in more and more artists. The songs are often ready to use (composition, production, distribution, promotion and videoclips that are broadcasted at Rotana TV and radio channels). Pop music has developed its own formula that has little to do with traditional oriental music. Still, the ‘oriental feeling’ is safeguarded by the use of oriental rhythms (from folk and dance music) and traditional instruments. The disadvantage of the formula is that many songs may sound the same, but big stars are still involved in making their music. It doesn’t matter where the artist is from, the market decides that the lyrics usually are written in a Egyptian or Lebanese dialect. Nevertheless Kazem El-Saher (Iraq) remains to sing classical poetry from Egypt and the Gulf states remain to enrich their own scene. Amr Diab still reaches the first place in the charts with his albums with the latest western pop innovations. The Ladies Nancy Ajram, Elissa and Sherine also have a place in the top, each with their own style and image. Videoclips play a bigger role than ever in making hits. Many of the hits we play in Wereldmineralen have a prestigious videoclip. Take a look for yourself on Youtube! We will listen to: Amr Diab, Sherine (Egypt) Elissa; Najwa Karam; Fares Karam (Lebanon) en Hasna (Morocco).
