Born on 21st June 1929, he came to be considered one of the four ‘greats’ of Egyptian and Arabic music. Abdel Halim’s music is still played on radio daily throughout the Arab world. His name is sometimes written as ‘Abd el-Halim Hafez, and he was also sometimes known as el-Andaleeb el-Asmar (the Brown Nightingale), on account of his sweet voice. He died on 30th March 1977.
