Al-Abnoudi followed the approach and form of the folk song in almost everything, as he concluded each sentence in the song with the word “Ya Boy” sometimes and “Ya Ain” at other times, even if the first sentence in the song was taken as it is from the Sa’idi heritage, but Al-Abnoudi was not the first Whoever introduced it to the world of professional and commercial singing, it was recorded even before Halim and Al-Abnudi was born.

Singing “I’m All I Say Repentance” by Abdel Halim

Fayrouz Hanim” issued in 1951, and this time took the correctness of the doctrine and followed in the footsteps of the first recordings, with words bearing the simple folk form, vocabulary and popular combinations.

The unique mix was completed by the singing of a small singer “Fayrouz”, that song in a pub with her folk band, and the dancer who was at the height of her brilliance, which is Tahia Karioka, which added an additional aesthetic dimension to the song, especially with the musical instruments and the women’s band, with a song composed by Qora and composed by Ali Faraj. .

Their head is Rushdie, and this did not happen except with the duo Baligh Hamdi and Ali Ismail.

“It is a small song and an experience. If you liked it, it will be complete. If you like it, it will not be enough.” That opening sentence in one of his first concerts of the song showed Halim’s fear of entering a new artistic style with his old and contemporary stars.

But the song was able to establish itself among all the copies of the other song that was borrowed from the same school, with an eloquent simple melody, which did not contain musical maqamat that required a strong voice in popular singing, and if it needed a strong voice like Halim, also helped the presence of the band, which added a distinctive touch For the song, Ismail also presented a new arrangement of the form of the popular song, a mixture that enabled Halim to present the popular song in a new musical dress using brass instruments.
