Mohammed «Mike» Hegazi محمد " مايك " حجازي





 
 
Lebanese singer and guitarist. He began his musical career in the late 70s. Has been compared, especially for the use of the electric guitar, to the famous Egyptian guitarist Omar Korshid and made instrumental albums in collaboration with the belly dancer Zeina Rouf'at. Over the years, his records have become highly appreciated for its excellent sound suited to the accompaniment of belly dance and the original vinyl recordings have become the subject of research by the collectors of the genre.
In the early 80 takes a different route and made ​​a series of albums, no more instrumental, containing pop songs    that will ensure a certain popularity.


Chitarrista e cantante libanese. Ha iniziata la sua carriera musicale verso la fine degli anni 70 . E' stato paragonato , sopratutto per l'uso della chitarra elettrica, al famoso chitarrista egiziano Omar Korshid e ha realizzato album strumentali in collaborazione con la danzatrice del ventre Zeina Rouf'at . Con il passare degli anni i suoi dischi sono divenuti molto apprezzati per le ottime sonorità adatte all'accompagnamento della danza del ventre e le registrazioni originali in vinile sono divenute oggetto di ricerca da parte dei collezionisti del genere.
All'inizio degli anni 80 prende una strada diversa e realizza una serie di album , non più strumentali, contenenti brani pop cantati da lui stesso che gli assicureranno una certa popolarità .

ARAB TUNES presents : " Greetings from Ramallah Mixtape"







Mixtape dedicated to the rap scene in Ramallah, one of the most exciting, interesting and creative of the contemporary Arab world.
Keep up guys !!





 

Sono ormai passati più di 15 anni da quando il primo brano rap è apparso sulla scena musicale palestinese . L'espressione in rima ha veicolato nell' ultimo decennio le istanze di molti giovani di Gaza e dei Territori Occupati. Molti osservatori internazionali, associazioni e semplici ascoltatori hanno voluto metter l'accento sul carattere rivoluzionario di questa forma espressiva . In molti casi non si è badato molto alla qualità musicale concentrandosi invece sulle parole , vedendo  questi giovani interpreti non come artisti che portano avanti un discorso musicale preciso , ma come giovani afflitti da i molti problemi che attanagliano la Palestina che hanno scelto il linguaggio del  rap  per esprimere frustrazioni, dolori, ingiustizie. Questa componente ovviamente esiste , fa parte di un espressione sociale importante che ha a che fare con un percorso affermativo legato all'esistenza e sopratutto alla resistenza di un popolo che vede costantemente negati i propri diritti, ma considerare la scena rap palestinese solo come espressione l'espressione di un disagio ( per quanto evidente) è decisamente limitante e sopratutto non corretto.

Basta confrontare un pezzo realizzato solo cinque anni or sono con un brano realizzato oggi per accorgersi della differenza. I beat si sono fatti più ricercati e complessi , la costruzione dei brani ha raggiunto livelli qualitativi eccezionali mentre i testi non si limitano più alla denuncia di Israele e delle sue nefandezze ma si sono, come dire, globalizzati estendendo le riflessioni a problemi di carattere filosofico oltre che sociale e politico . La ricerca sonora, tesa ad un sorta di fusione tra ritmiche occidentali e melodie levantine , ha portato alla nascita di una e vera propria nuova scuola per ciò che riguarda la musica rap . Alcuni album realizzati dai rappers dei territori in questi ultimi due anni sono da considerarsi dei veri e propri manifesti di questo nuovo suono nato in Medio Oriente . Purtroppo le classifiche di fine anno redatte dalle maggiori riviste specializzate del settore li hanno completamente ignorati.
Il futuro del rap , a dispetto di critici e specialisti, sta in quello che noi occidentali ci ostiniamo a chiamare terzo mondo e la Palestina è li a dimostrarlo.


In questo mixtape ho voluto presentare i protagonisti della scena hip hop di Ramallah, una delle più interessanti , creative ed eccitanti a livello mondiale....e non è un esagerazione.


Lo ribadisco con forza : Il futuro è qui !!!

B-Soldiers / Jnood Beirut




In 2007 four friends united to practice the thing they love, Hip-Hop music and called themselves "B-Soldiers" meaning Beirut Soldiers. From that came to birth a mixtape released in 2007 called "Mich Min Maken" which was then taken out of the internet because the band thought they can make better music when they took their musical career seriously.

In 2008 they started recording at a studio in Ajaltoun for M.O.D records after the founder loved the talent that B-Soldiers had. They released several singles at that time some are still known and loved for this date.

In 2009 B-Soldiers collaborated with rapper and producer Jabha and rapper Basbous to build what it was to be the most famous crew/record in Lebanese Hip-Hop called "Shaweri3". At that time B-Soldiers produced lots of tracks for rappers from Shaweri3 and outside Shaweri3 also helped organize and supervise the work at Shaweri3, at that year they released what became the anthem of the Lebanese Hip-Hop the song called " Hiphop Lebneneh" and lots of other singles.

In 2012 B-Soldiers collaborated with rappers Basbous and T-Rex to build a studio based in Sed El Bauchriyeh called "Zero To Hero". From that studio B-Soldiers released the collaboration track with both members of the studio called " Chou esmik" produced by Lipos from B-Soldiers.
Later on B-Soldiers collaborated with different hiphop artists in Lebanon to release the " Bi Ekhtisar" collaborative video that was released on 1-1-2013.

In 2013 now called Jnood Beirut to emphasize on the importance of delivering Lebanese Hip-Hop in the Arabic language, member Lipos collaborated with two of the finest producers in the Lebansese Hip-Hop scene Edd from Fareeq El Atrash and Elepheel to release the experimental/triphop album called "Tripnol".
Earlier that year Lipos wrote rapped and produced the single for the famous lebanese facebook page " Lebanese Memes"


 Jnood Beirut is a Lebanese Hip-Hop/Rap band founded by members Lipos & Chakk. Spreading their words in the Arabic language, both members of the team are also producers and everything in a song procedure from A to Z is done by both members only.

Being around since 2007 having started at a young age Jnood Beirut quickly made a name for themselves in the Lebanese Hiphop scene collaborating with lots of artists and making beats for lots of known artists in the region.

The 01.19.2014 have realized their first album entitled " Ta7iyeh "
which is fully written produced by the two members having only 1 collaboration song.
