Ghalia Benali will take audiences on a captivating musical journey with her tribute to the legendary Umm Kulthum. One of the greatest Arab singers who ever lived, Umm Kulthum, also known as ” Kawkab Al Sharq” or “Star of the Orient” had mesmerized audiences for over 50 years with her unparalleled voice and raw emotional power. Her legacy continues to have a great influence on the Arab world.
Singer-songwriter Ghalia Benali started her artistic career in 1992, blending different types of music, connecting different cultures; reviving the old and rooting the new is a natural outcome of mixing the two extremes she lived through. Born in Brussels, raised in south Tunisia. Her music has been noted for its attribution to multiple genres and defining contemporary Arabic music.
