After a very big success of “Golden age of Egyptian Music” in Denmark and Sweden I would like to present you my new project :
"Golden age of Arabian Divas"
a tribute to Arabian music
Presented by Fatma Zidan & Ensemble
- A new Scandinavian multi cultural project with focus in the largest diva in the Middle East ; Oum Kulthum.
A presentation of the best music which was written in The Middle East in the middle of the last century .
As an extension of the positive and dramatic developments which is happened the last 4 years in the Arabic region - we will present the Arabian cultural roots which has been a continuously inspiration to create the Middle East which appears today. Music is still one of the important elements in the revolution we have seen until now in the Arabian region.
A highly professional level with some of the best Egyptian musicians
with the Egyptian Singer (living in Denmark), Fatma Zidan as Solist – together with international musicians from Denmark with some of the best instrumentalists from Cairo- Egypt.
Repertoire will be from Oum Khaltoum and other singers from
"The Golden Age" such as Warda , Fayruz, Laila Murad, Nagat , etc.
Through the music from “The Golden age” we can improve our understanding - and make a better and more truthful picture of the culture from The Middle East.

This CD release is a unique mix of love songs about experiences from relationships to patriotism. After moving to Denmark - still being an Egyptian -
Fatma Zidan here proves that we now live in a global community where borders between west and east - south and north are getting more and more invisible.
This CD is dedicated to love between all mankind - whether you arefrom a village in upper Egypt or from a Copenhagen suburb.
