Legendary Saudi singer Mohammed Abdu shines in New Year’s Eve Concert held in Riyadh
Saudi prominent singer Mohamed Abdu performed on Tuesday a marvelous night concert in the Saudi capital of Riyadh to celebrate New Year’s night in Riyadh Season Boulevard zone where he sang a bouquet of his most famous songs, which achieved great success during his artistic career.
The Riyadh city where the concert took place, experienced last night not only a mere concert , but also an artistic wedding in honor of the Arab artist Mohamed Abdu, titled “Night of the Godfather of singing” at a theater that carries his name located in the Boulevard, the night went under the auspices of the Saudi General Authority of Entertainment.
Mohammed Abdu was born in 1949 in Abha the capital of Aseer province in Saudi Arabia.
Abdu began his music career in the beginning of the sixties. He entered the world of singing at an early age.
Abdou released numerous successful songs and albums throughout his artistic career that has spanned over 50 years, such as “El Amaken” (The places), and “Bo’ad Wala Orybeen” (Near or Far) among others.
His earliest releases were religious chants and Quran recitations.
Abdu’s music was based on the older generation’s ageless talents and songs of maybe a thousand years of heritage, but nevertheless, he was credited to at least preserving these songs called mawrouth (the inherited songs) without much change in their buildup or musical arrangements.
