Accompanied by his band that combines some of the most skilful instrumentalists in the country, Mounir is expected to introduce a selection of his evergreen hits like ‘Al-Leila Ya Samra’, ‘Shabaeek’, ‘Lamma Al-Naseem’, ‘Ashky Le-Mein’, ‘Ally Soutak’, ‘Younis’, ‘Alemouny Eineeky’, among many others.

Mounir has a unique vocal timbre and colour that paved his way to fame, cementing him as one of the most beloved musicians of the Arab world. He is best known for his many compositions that are inspired by Nubian folklore; however, he also has a large pop repertoire.

Mounir has also collaborated with some of the most acclaimed Egyptian poets of his time, including Abdel-Rahman El-Abnoudi, Salah Jahin, Fouad Haddad, and Sayed Hegab.

Moreover, he has collaborated with an arsenal of iconic musicians from different generations, including Fathy Salama, Yehia Khalil, and Shenouda. His fame rivals that of the biggest African music pop stars, such as Khaled, Youssou N’Dour, and Amr Diab; all of which he collaborated with.
