    Majed El Mohandes is NOT KHALEEJI! He is Iraqi, which is not considered from the Khaleej nor from Sham (Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, etc). Sometimes Iraq is categorized as "north" with Syria and Lebanon, but Iraq is kind of in-between, and you can see many things in Iraqi music and dances that are similar to both Shami and Khaleeji music (debke/choubi, hair twirling, bizkha etc). There should be a category just for Iraqi music just like there are categories for Lebanese and Egyptian, did you forget Kazem el Saher, Alaa Saad ("Bortogala"), Rida Abdullah??

    Meghrebi section has room for a lot more folks, I'm assuming Meghrab includes Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, am I right, so why are there only two songs? Hasna, Fulla, the Chebs??

    Khaleej has sooo many more singers, Abbas Ibrahim, Rashed Majed, Ahlam, Aryaam, Maram, and 100s of singers that have names that start with "Abul" lol.

    Improve your list please WALEG.

  1. WALEG

    Dear All,

    Thank you for all your suggestions, we will be taking them into consideration, however we will be giving other visitors and friends a chance to post their suggestions too before updating the polls listings.

    Thank you again :)

  1. WALEG

    The choice of the songs is based on the top songs that were choosen by the Arab Audience on Melody and Rotana Music Tv channels... Its true that there are many songs that are much better than those on the lists, we agree with you and we will be taking your suggestions into consideration as previously stated.

  1. aramko

    Dear Waleg,

    I don't understand your choice of Maghrebi songs. While those singers come from the Arab Maghreb, their music is not considered maghrebi. They sing in Egyptian. Al maghreb al Arabi has scores of other singers who sing their own dialect. Especially in Algeria. I know you say these songs were chosen by Tv viewers but that's not an excuse in my book.


  1. sousou

    je suis d'accord avec toi aramko
    vous avais séléctionez des chanteurs qui chantes en dialecte de moyen orient.
    ce là ne veux pas dire qu'il n y as pas une chancons magrébine.
    notament si en prend l'algérie c'est le seul pays arabe qui as fais connaitre sa music dans le monde.
    donc quand on choisie des région du monde arabe, on choisie en fonction de style et culture.
    c'est vraiment mon avie.
    merci a tous

  1. wacko

    i know that majid el muhandis is iraqi and not khaleeji,but,his song gwwa gwwa IS khaleeji and its a popular song here in gulf,so thats y its in the khaleej section ;)

  1. Eva


    In Lebanse singer i choose :
    Nanacy 3garm
    Maria ...(They r the best)

    bent lebanon

  1. Jude


    You say Majed El Mohandes is singing khaleeji accent in the song "gwwa gwwa" but

    Nancy Ajram is Lebanese, "Enta Aih" is Egyptian accent.

    Dolly chahine, Lebanese singer. "Moumou Eini" Meghraben accent.

    Maria, Lebanese singer. "Bahebak ad eh" Egyptian accent.

    Samira Saeid, Moroccan singer. "Makhalas" Egyptian accent.

    Kazem El Saher, Iraqi singer. Many of his songs, "A7bnny", "Ella Talmeezi", "Zidini 3shqan", etc are in fos7a.

    Getting the point here? None of the songs I listed are sung in the dialect of the singer's country. So, Majed Mohandes is still Iraqi even if he sang in Khaleeji or Egyptian as he does a lot.

    Getting the point here?

    i reallyn loooooooooooooove uuuu babe

  1.  liliane

    Dolly Chahine's song is in Algerian dialect with some French. It's true that maghrebi(Algerian, Tunisian, Moroccan) dialects are very similar, but there is no such a thing as a Maghrebi accent. More importantly each one of these countries i cited above has it's own
    style(s) of music!

    under khaleejy songs it should deffinately be abbass ibrahim! and song will do. all of his songs are wonderful!

  1. nadia

    Just commenting on people who stated that the song Gowah Gowah by majid almuhandis is is not khaleeji it is actually an iraqi song which is sang by many iraqi singers...its like other iraqi songs that many iraqi singers sing which include 5ala w ya 5ala and 7ayra and gullby wija3ny etc..Majid almuhandis is an iraqi singer..iraq is not part of the khaleej nor is it from the north...
    God Bless IRAQ
    Mwahhhhhh to all iraqis :)
