Samira Said biography
Samira Said (Arabic: سميرة سعيد (native name: Samira Bensaïd) ; born Jan 10, 1959) is an Arabic singer. She was born and raised in Rabat, Morocco. Said lives in Cairo, Egypt with her husband Moustapha Naboulssi. The couple has a son.
Samira began singing professionally at the age of 9. Encouraged by her family, she began her career by participating in talent shows. Her first appearance on television was in the show "Mawaheb" as Aziza Jalal.
In a short time, Samira Said, as she is known in Morocco, became one of the leading names in her home country. Her best known works include "Maghlouba" and "Wa'ady".
Said's ambitions extended beyond Morocco and following the advice of her idol and friend, Abdul Halim Hafez, she moved to Egypt to expand her career.
In 1980 Said sang Morocco's first (and so far only) entry in the Eurovision Song Contest. Her song "Bitaqat Khub".
In the early 1980s, Said recorded a song called "Al hob Elli Ana Aichah", composed by Mohamad Sultan. She went on to record with big names in the music scene in Egypt, including Baligh Hamdi, Helmi Bakr and Mohamad Al-Mouji.
Samira Said's performance of "Alemnah Al hob", on Layali Television in 1983, is credited with making her well known in Egypt. Said is known for her careful selection of songs and accompanists, working with several well known composers and lyricists. As a result, many of her songs are critically acclaimed, such as "Asmar malak", "Malak moch zay aweydak", "Sayidati anissati sadati", "Ech gab li gab", "El Leila dee", "Min ghir sabab", "Amrak ajib", "Al gani Baad Yomeen", "Mosh Hatnazel Anak" and "Alf Leila wal Leila".
In 2005, she followed this success with 'Aweeny Beek' (make me stronger). In 2006, she again struck gold with "Kolena Enssan" (We are all humans), a new song for Africa Cup of the Nations which she sings in French, English, and Arabic. "Kolena Enssan" debuted at the opening of the African Cup Of Nations in Cairo in the summer of 2006, and her performance at Casablanca on July 21-22 won her the accolade, the "Queen of Arabic music" On November 4, 2006, she took part in the Concert for Tolerance in Agadir, Morocco, where she performed with many international artists(Zucchero, Pascal Obispo, F.Pagny, Helene Segara, Faudel, Cheb Mami, Lorie, and Amina...).
Samira has achieved an unusual longevity in the Arabic world, frequently adopting new stylistic influences, such as Tarab, Raï and Jazz. Samira Said proved her vocal artistry by being able to record classical Arabic songs in the manner of Oum Kaltsoum while also drawing on elements of rai, jazz and Western pop. Her album Youm Wara Youm takes chances - forests of strings sweep over a dance beat, a DJ's scratching lends a ragged rhythm to gutteral Arabic wailing - while Samira's voice coils and rises with considerable emotional power. She has worked with a variety of young talents, producing a series of albums including "Inssani", "Khaifa", "Ashka", "Enta Habibi", "Kul Dee Eshaat", "Al Bal", "Rohy", "Leila Habibi", "Youm Wara Youm" and her latest album "Awweeni Beek."
