A Tribute to Warda & Baleegh

In 1959, Warda met Baleegh at a reception in Cairo, and told him that she had decided to marry him years earlier when she heard the music he had composed for Abdelhalim; their union was a meeting of two giants who have left the Arabic Music scene, with some of the best and most beautiful works. Gone but never forgotten, Marwa will take us through their life journey with some of their most memorable songs.
