Amr Diab - Ella Habiby (Klyk's Private Mix)

My latest remix has been inspired by my recent trip to Egypt. Amr Diab is the biggest star there and his music has crossed some boundaries from just being Egyptian or Arabic music.
Read on:
Amr Abdel Basset Abdel Azeez Diab (Arabic:) (born October 11, 1961) is an Egyptian
singer and composer of jeel music; the contemporary face of Egyptian al-jeel pop
music, according to World Music, and the most popular singer in the Middle East. Diab
is the best-selling Arab recording artist of all time, according to Let's Go Egypt. He
was awarded the World Music Award for Best Selling Middle Eastern Artist three times:
1998, 2002 and 2007.

Amr Diab is known as the Father of Mediterranean Music. He has created his own style
which is often termed "Mediterranean Music" or "Mediterranean Sound", a blend of
Western and Arabic rhythms.

In The Mediterranean in Music, David Cooper and Kevin Dawe referred to his music as
"the new breed of Mediterranean music".

According to author Michael Frishkopf, Amr Diab has produced a new concept of
Mediterranean music, especially in his international hit, "Nour El Ain".

In his analysis of The Very Best of Amr Diab album, Victor W. Valdivia of Allmusic
said: "His music melded traditional Arabic sounds and textures with Western rhythms
and instruments. The mesh was dubbed Mediterranean music, and The Very Best of Amr
Diab displays Diab's superb skill in creating it."

According to the BBC, Diab "has ruled the Arab music world, especially Egypt and the
Middle East, since the mid '80s, continually breaking sales records".
