One of the most important figures in the world of Lebanese and Arab music today, the popular and incredibly charismatic Lebanese musician and singer-songwriter, Wael Kfoury is often referred to as ‘The King of Romance’. Kfoury’s artistic career was launched by his duet with Nawal Al Zoghbi of the well-known song Min Habibi Ana. Wael Kfoury is especially popular among young people because of his amazing vocal prowess and his creativity in combining youth songs with tarab, a style of music that induces ecstatic response, and mawwal, a traditional genre of vocal music that is usually presented before the song begins. His most famous and best-loved songs are Bahebak ana Kteer and Sa’alouni. Released in 2017, Kfoury’s latest album, Ghdartini, features some of his greatest hits.
