1.They call HAKIM حكيم the Lion of Egypt. But he's a Lion with a musical roar. The star of the street pop called sha'bi is the man who's brought the music into the modern age, adding new rhythms and new sounds to the tradition. Born in Maghagha, a small town in Minya, Egypt, in 1962, Hakim grew up with the sound of sha'bi. "It was the only music," he recalls. "From being a kid, that was the sound for me. It's the root of Egyptian music, and comes from the south, where I grew up. So when I started singing, that was what I automatically started singing."
