After the strict measures to control the spread of Covid-19 in 2020, 2021 was a fresh change as music was once again in the air. Egypt experienced a myriad of creative genres that form its musical identities: from classical forms of Arabic music, to traditional and folkloric performances, Western genres and those infused with Oriental charm. To honour the great musical tradition from Egypt, we’ve got the top 14 hits from this year.
It might be almost impossible to pinpoint the most popular or successful music productions of the year, as is success really measurable? Should we follow the charts or count the views on YouTube or SoundCloud? Can success within a smaller community be dismissed? The Egyptian music scene is too rich to limit ourselves to the shiniest of colours.
