I have written about indie artist Mohamed Mohsen few times before, but this time, I write about him in the context of the medium he choses for his songs. This Egyptian singer and composer with an authentic voice from the streets of Cairo. He can make his voice to fit any topic and melody he is working with. Mohsen's choice of unique music and lyrics highlights his deep belief in preserving the Egyptian culture.
Many admire his innovative covers for masterpieces of great musicians; the Egyptian "artist of the people", Sayed Darwish, and Mohammed Abdel-Wahab known as the "musician for all generations". Not bad for a young artist whose career and journey began in "Tahrir Square" where his voice strikes a chord with his lovers of memories of the January 25th revolution. Mohsen released his first album "Al-Laf fe Shawre'ek" in January 2012 in which he reflected the reality of Egyptians' everyday life. The album won the love and admiration of his fans and critics and envy of his peers.
He is an award-winning artist. But also before landing on music, his first acting and drama and theatre experience though his performance in the play "Hekayet elnas fe thawret 1919" on “National Theatre” and the series "Zay ElWard" which was presented in Ramadan 2012, in which he offered his fans several romantic songs which are among his hits till the present day.
Among his proud moments performed in a concert in Lebanon alongside legendary activist turned musician Marcel Khalifa.
Mohsen shares his songs on his Sound Cloud profile page, where you hit one song and you never know where the next song is coming from. This is like playing a game that allows you to explore new tracks and travel to new destinations.
