Single Saturdays: Amr Diab – Amaken El Sahar

Egyptian singer Amr Diab has released a new single entitled Amaken El Sahar (Place for celebrations). It’s a love song describing in detail what true love feels.

The music is Arabic Pop mixed in with Tarab (classical Arabic music). The rhythm varies from slow to fast to slow. Aziz Elshafey composed the song with precision, combining the old and the new. The combination of instruments such as the tambourine, darbakeh, and the lut gives the tune a Summer feel.   

Amr Diab’s voice is bold and rhythmic. He follows the music going from high to low and vice-versa at the right moments. He sounds sweet and sentimental.

The lyrics are romantic and intricate. Tamer Hussein wrote the song with a poetic touch and captured the sweet emotions. There’s incredible freestyle writing of poetry that gives it a lovely dynamic with ABBA structure with a magnificent flow to the song. The lyrics describe a love story of a guy who shows his love for the woman he loves. 

The single  Amaken El Sahar is available.
