Omar Khorshid عمر خورشيد ( reloaded)


Omar Khorshid ,born in 1945 in Cairo, Egypt , died 29  May 1981,  was a  movie star and famed guitarist of the Middle east, he composed the music for thirteen films. In 1971 won the Premier Prix at the Film Festival of Tachkand for his music for the film Ebnati El Aziza. Khorshid is renowned as one of the greatest guitarist of the Arab world and has accompanied all its leading singers including Umm Kulthum, Abdel Wahab, and Abdul Halim Hafez.

The Freak of Araby is an album by Sir Richard Bishop, released on May 26, 2009, on the Drag City record label. It includes covers of several songs written by Omar Khorshid.

The late Omar Khorshid remains an iconic legend of the Arab world, though he’s received criminally little international acclaim. Born in Cairo in 1945, the glittering age of Egypt's cultural reinvention, Khorshid was soon to become one of its luminaries and most well-known, if short-lived, voices. He is regarded as the greatest guitarist the Arab world has ever known. By the mid 60s Khorshid was established with his group Le Petit Chats, an Egyptian beat group modeled after the prevailing influence of Elvis and the Beatles. It was at this time that one of the reigning figures of contemporary Arabic music, Abdel Halim Hafez, asked Omar Khorshid to join his orchestra. With Baligh Hamdi composing, Hafez with Khorshid in place would create some of the most innovative modern sounds in the Arabic musical canon.

Time with the Hafez orchestra offered Khorshid instant fame, and it wasn’t long before he was asked to play with the queen of Arab music, the voice of Egypt herself -Oum Kalthoum. Over the next few years Khorshid became a well-established and integral part of the Arab musical landscape. He was featured heavily in live concerts, national TV and radio and studio recordings, playing for the leading artists of the day. The guitar had now become an essential ingredient in the Oriental orchestra. Khorshid began recording albums under his own name for the prestigious Lebanese record labels Voice Of The Orient and Voice Of Lebanon. Working with visionary engineer Nabil Moumtaz at Polysound studios in Beirut, Khorshid would take his music into some of the most progressive musical terrain of its time. The tracks included here in this retrospective are from the prolific span of Khorshid’s career in Beirut from 1973 to 1977. The venerable Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish best encapsulated this time in Lebanon: “unfortunately, it was paradise”. Khorshid’s prolific instrumental music enjoyed recognition that transcended class and status during the brief period he shone. It’s a testament to his immense talent and some of the finest guitar music the world has ever heard

  1. Dear friend thanks for your wonderful music!
    But, here, there's a small problem. Links for Belly Dance Volume 1 and Belly Dance Volume 2 are the same. Can you check it out please?

  2. Thanks for your report . I have corrected the error.

  3. Sadly, The Very Best Of Omar Khorshid (Belly Dance Delights), has rapidly gone. I have been in love with his music since I came across him by pure chance. The only album I have not heard is this. If possible, could a new link be made? Thanks in advance.

  4. No problem ... the file has been reloaded. Try it now.

  5. Apologies first for my delayed thanks to you for sorting out my request. I have to say your site has been a goldmine of bringing to me music that untill a few years ago I knew nothing about, but with which I have fallen in love with. I am amazed by the variety, depth and unique sounds - its history, cultures, religion meshed in creating wonderful sounds, both traditional and modern. Of Indian heritage in Europe, my great music loves (and still are) have been punk and reggae.

    But the music of the Middle East has me spellbound. I have particularly loved finding the sounds of women singers such as Souad Massi, Ghalia Benali, Lena Chamamyan and Amel Mathlouthi, the raw, cutting-edge, modern sounds that are totally innovative, such as SoapKills/YAS and Jarring Efffects, early modern such as Maurice el Medioni and the album 'A Night in Beirut' and classical music, especially the sound of the oud.

    And the song that is now in my all-time top 10 favourite songs is Ana Bashak El Bahr (I am in love with the sea) by Nagat. The sound of the singer and the music is spellbinding. I have found out that the composer of the song is Hani Shanouda, who also founded Les Petits Chats and Al Masriyyin (The Egyptians). I have from your site El Masreyen. If you have any more music by Nagat or Hani Shanouda I would love to hear what it sounds like.

    I would like to thank you so much for running this blog, the time and effort you put into it is astounding, and I greatly appreciate what you are doing. You are opening the ears of people, like me, who otherwise would never have a chance to hear such wonderful music. Much love and peace.
