Biography

Ehab Tawfik (إيهاب توفيق) is an only child, and got married in 2006. He learned how to play the lute as a child, and his love for music started when he was only nine years old.

In 1995 he received his Masters Degree for his thesis: “The Egyptian Song in the Second Half of the Twentieth Century”. Not satisfied with just a master degree, Ehab worked toward his Doctorate in Music and Arabic singing, completed in April 2002. The doctorate was entitled “The Methods of Performing Arabic Singing in Egypt during the second half of the last century”.

He is seen as one of the top singers in the Arab world, especially revered in his hometown. Arguably, his greatest exposure as an artist came on February 26, 2001, when he performed for 50,000 people at a benefit concert to raise funds for Iraqis who were maimed during the Gulf War in Baghdad.

Critics say the successes of Ehab albums year after year can be attributed to his warm voice, good lyrics, and ability to find talented composers.

In 2006, Ehab denied rumors that he had an affair with the model that appears with him in the video “Alath Kilmit Hub” (“The Sweetest Love Word”). He said that she lives in Germany and came to Egypt solely to work as a model. She was born to an Egyptian father and a German mother, he added.
