Lebanese diva plans Easter shows in Europe

JEDDAH: Arab singing sensation Maya Diab will present two European concerts as part of Easter celebrations. The first show is scheduled for Stockholm on April 7 and the second in Germany the following day.
Diab’s highly charged performances will include an eclectic mix of her best-known songs, including “Tebhed Anni,” “Hiya id Dunia,” and her latest “Sadika Eli,” composed by Fares Iskandar and arranged by Hadi Sharara.
The Lebanese pop singer and actress is one of the most popular performers in the world of Arab entertainment.
Diab is also one of the most controversial stars in the region. She shocked viewers in 2014 when she appeared on a TV show wearing what looked like a head scarf with a revealing dress.
Diab has reportedly been banned from entering the US since 2014 and was placed on a “terror list” at that time, according to Annahar.
