Ahmed Adaweyah on AND Planet ImageWire
Ahmed Adaweyah (Arabic: احمد عدوية) is an Egyptian singer of sha'abi music. He has starred in 27 Egyptian films. Adaweyah started his career as a cafe waiter but in 1971, he began performing songs using the language of the streets of Cairo, full of working class slang and double entendres. Like many shaabi (meaning of the 'people', or working class) singers Adaweyah specializes in mawal (vocal improvisation). He was drugged and attacked by a jealous Kuwaiti husband in 1998.
