Will This Interesting Idea Save The Music Industry?

This is something you do not get to see everyday, Libyan native and popular producer of Egyptain pop Hamdi El Shari has really gotten sick of piracy. So he came up with what might be a smart idea to combat the theft of his hard work.

The idea is to sell the album on a 3D glasses, the album will be there, and so will there be a number of music videos, and behind the scenes footage. This I bet China made product will also have Bluetooth so the material can be enjoyed on TV or some devices. The front of the glass will also for the album cover art to be printed. There are headphones, and a screen in that glass.

This sounds like a good idea, it's individual, people won't like to borrow this around, each person would buy one of his own. Commercially this sounds like a goldmine of an idea, this way the artists hope to selll more albums, introduce a cool concept that has never been done anywhere in the world. And to be honest, people would buy the album to just see what's this deal is about.

Questions, how much would this glasses sell for? Will people be able to enjoy their music without having to cover their eyes? driving and walking safety? Hamid seems to be both excited for the concept, and worried as he asked people to pray for him and for this idea. Will other singer copy the idea? And the last question, will Hamid El Shari's album be a good one? His last was in 2006 and it was pretty awesome.

Update, it seems the artist has scraped the idea.

Egypt Bombs Yemen And Sings For Them Simultaneously

The cowardly armies in the Gulf and Egypt are bombing people in Yemen from their safe locations. Mostly undemocratic governments have formed a coalition to bomb Yemen. It's gross to see who this Yemeni conflict is being labeled as sectarian. I do not see it as so. There are a lot of legitimate concerts against the Hady regime who was okay with foreign governments bombing his own citizens. So aside from that it seems the government in Egypt has bribed some of her biggest cheerleaders to sing a song for the state of Yemen.  

It's a song riddled with bullshit and half-truths. These idiots artists you will hear and see enjoy living in countries that offer little freedoms. Yet, they are preaching these things. I think people in Egypt should shut up and get back to work. Let's see how appeared in this song, Hany Shaker who urged his government to murder its own people if they are brotherhood. Nadia Mostafa, released a song for the police in Egypt days after they slaughtered countless activists. Ghada Rajjab, who made great music in  Turkey and turned around to speak ill of the very country that hosted her. Rakan, who did you say?

The people bombing what do they have to offer them?

Amazing Song! True Love Is Like Rare Coins Sings Composer Madian

I like the thinking and the logic in this new song by Madian. It's a super sweet song from a guy who has found the one love for the rest of his life. The song offers a perfect combination of emotional maturity and youthful excitement. This seems like areal song dedicated to Madian's bride. Madian is a bright young music composer in Egypt whose brand makes him on the top list of the industry.   

On their wedding night Madian chose to perform this song himself to show his love and commitment. But he really did show us a lot more of this true talent. I love his voice and how real and crisp he comes across. Mazzika released this personal song to the masses based on popular demand. Music news sites cited the song was meant to be for the wedding but since it was a big hit with the crowd, it got a studio release.

I like the footage from the wedding, it shows a big party, but the center stage was given to the new couple. Madian has a lot to offer and his voice will do great things.

Vole By Celine Dion Gets The Hiba Tawaji Treatment

One thing is clear to me, either Americans do not appreciate the music of Celine Dion or they have decided to keep it as a guilty pleasure. The Canadian artist with an amazing set of vocalist is a huge draw everywhere. The world cherishes her and her music.

Just look at Lebanese Hiba Tawaji, she chose to do a sweet cover for one of Celine Dion's better songs Vole. I like what Hiba is doing, she sings in more than one tongue and she seems to give each language her very best. It's like she is walking inside a hall of mirrors. Her voice is always the same, but her style adapts and her persona changes to git the song.

Hiba sings amazing original song sin Arabic--her voice goes well with the piano, she has already took the French version of The Voice by storm earlier this year. Hiba has already released amazing songs in English as well.
