Egyptian mahraganat singer, Hassan Shakosh, will be performing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar on December 12th, bringing his hit songs ‘Bent El Geran and ‘Habibiti’ to a global stage. The Giza-born artist is known for mixing shaabi-inspired music and pop sounds with his soulful voice, a fusion that has become synonymous with Egyptian weddings, parties, and celebrations. Despite the ongoing crackdown against Mahraganat music, Shakosh is taking his original sound somewhere he can be heard.
