With a prolific career spanning more than four decades, thousands of songs and more than 30 albums, Mohamed Abdo is a master beyond compare. Known as ‘The Artist of the Arabs’ – a name given to him by the Tunisian President Bourguiba, one of his admirers – Abdu is Saudi Arabia’s most revered musician and an Arab superstar.
His music career began in the early 1960s, at a very young age, and his first hit came in 1968, garnering him huge acclaim not only in Saudi Arabia but also in Lebanon and Egypt. Since these lauded beginnings, he has played a central role in the introduction of Khaleeji music to Arab audiences, transforming regional tastes and sustaining the music’s relevance into the 21st century. Today, he is celebrated by legions of dedicated fans for his preservation of mawrouth (the inherited songs), consistently selling out arena shows and headlining festivals across the Middle East.
