WAMA, The First Arab Boy Band


WAMA are the first Egyptian and Arab boy band, consisting of 4 very talented members, all graduates of the Egyptian conservatoire.

They are Nader Hamdi (Waddour,23, pianist and bass vocals), Ahmed El Shami (Shami, 23, percussionist and bass vocals), Mohamed Nour (Nour, 22, violinist and lead vocals) and Ahmed Fahmi (Fahmi, 24, violinist and lead vocals).

WAMA was formed in 1999. They wrote their own lyrics and started composing, singing, and arranging their demo tape.

I first knew of them when I heard their first single and first album title track “Ya Leil” a couple of years ago. I really liked the song and thought they had the potential to become a successful boy band and lead the way for other Arab boy bands.

Now they’re coming out with a second album called “Ya Ghali Alayya”, and from the 2 or 3 songs I heard from it, it looks like it’s going to be a really good one.

I really like the direction they’re taking in their music and style.
If you don’t know them, I truly recommend checking their stuff out.
