An Aleppine Icon: Sabah Fakhri

Sabah Fakhri is the most famous performer of the traditional “qudood” and “muwashahat” music types. He was born in Aleppo to a conservative family. He was enrolled into to the Academy of Arabic Music of Aleppo then to the Academy of Damascus, from which he graduated in 1948. Then in Cairo, Egypt, he studied under the music masters of that time, and since then he started performing concerts in Syria. He soon became famous all over the Arab World. He also performed many concerts in Europe and the Americas. His name is enshrined in the Guinness Book of Records for his prowess in Caracas, where he sang for 10 hours without a pause.

We celebrate with joy and respect the art and fame of Sabah Fakhrey.

With respect to your source, one should not, but recognize the credit to the late Mr.Fakhry El-Baroudi. who discovered, sheltered and qualified Sabah Fakhry .

Sabah Fakhery was taken from an orphanage in Aleppo,by Mr.Fakhry El-Baroudi, and lived at Mr.El-BaroudiIn home ,in fact his last name Fakhry, was taken from his patron Fakhry El-Baroudi,who arranged for his Musical teachings ,and guided him to the style he is known by.

The fact remains where Sabah Fakhry stands , it is his talent and hard work, nothing else would bring an achiever such as Sabah Fakhry to where he is to day ,if it was not his own talents and perseverance.

Just wanted to straiten the record, as by the admittance of Sabah Fakhry.

Please verify, your source, and correct your unintentional mistake.
Thank you.

Thank you very much Anonymous for the info. You are obviously much more knowledgeable about the subject than I do.

Yesterday I searched for another biography of Sabah Fakhri, and I only found this one which is similar to the one I posted, and it too doesn’t mention anything about Mr. Baroudi :

I would appreciate it if you can provide me with a link to your sources or you references, so I can add them to the original post.

I grew up listening to western music and I am not a fan of arabic one, but Sabah Fakhri is the Singer, The voice, The charisma, The music..I cannot imagine sitting in an oriental cafe in old Damascus with no Sabah Fakhry's music playing in the background. His music and lyrics are very deep and emotionally moving. I love him.
May he stay in good health.
