Biography

Amr Diab (Arabic: عمرو دياب‎) (born Amr Abdel Basset Abdel Azeez Diab on October 11, 1961) is an singer and composer of music. Diab has become one of the highest-selling artists of all time. He was awarded “The World Music Award” 3 times (1998, 2002, & 2007), as being the best-selling Middle Eastern singer.

His father worked for the Suez Canal Corporation as a porter in the marina, and was a part-time sheepherder. He possessed a fine singing voice and encouraged the young Diab to sing and dance at the “Mawaled” (street festivals) in this early age.

When Diab was just six years old, his father took him to the 23rd July Festival at Port Said, where they visited the local broadcasting station and Amr made his first singing appearance on Egyptian Radio performing the National Anthem “Bilady, Bilady, Bilady.” He was praised by the Governor of Port Said who awarded him with a guitar as a prize.

In due course, Diab began his musical studies at the music faculty of the Cairo Academy of Art, from which he graduated in 1986. His first album Ya Tareeq followed shortly and was an instant success. There have been since then sixteen top-selling albums in a prolific recording career which has established him as a superstar in Egypt and the Arab world.

Diab has toured widely throughout his career organizing galas and performing concerts in Australia, Canada, Europe, and the United States.

In 1990, Diab was chosen to represent Egypt at the 5th Tournament of African Sports where he sang in English and French as well as Egyptian Arabic. This concert was televised by satellite throughout the Arab world and highlighted on CNN.

    Any Arabic speakers and Diab fans out there? A discography page accessible for English speakers with the correct arabic names for tracks and albums would be much appreciated by me and, I believe, by many other fans as well as people interested in Arabic music! :)
