Must See! MAGIC! - Rude (Egyptian style cover) by Ahmad A. El Haggar @ahmadelhaggar

Ahmad El Haggar Is one of the most innovative Egyptian musicians. The US trained young artist who hails from a family that's a powerhouse in Egyptian music--father is world renowned vocalist Ali  El Haggar. Instead of resting at home and enjoying the perks that come with being the song of one the most celebrated vocalists in country, Ahmad El Haggar  had a plan.

He came to the States to expand his world of music and enrich his background in whatever musical world he comes across. And that way Ahmad El Haggar 's interest in music has grown and now does he do Arabic and Egyptian music so well, he also dabbled into American music with a twist. While in Boston he has performed alongside the likes of Carole King and Jason Mraz.

The young and exciting vocalist just introduced an Egyptian style cover of the smash hit "Rude" by MAGIC! The cover is influenced by the music of Nubia located in Southern Egypt as well as a few influences by rhythms from the Arab gulf. The video includes footage from the city of Aswan located in the South. So this is how one does brilliant work, put your own imprint on hit songs, make them local but get the attention of the international audience at the same time.

For few years I have followed the career of this young artists and ever since and I am mesmerized by his musical surprises. He is gentleman who gives credit to all his collaborators unlike many artists who deny their band the recognition. Keep trucking Ahmad, there's so much to do and you have already taken so many by storm.
