Nancy Ajram Revamps Her Songs for 'Coke Studio'

Lebanese singing sensation Nancy Ajram, known for her mainstream appeal and multi-million dollar endorsements, did something quite refreshing lately during her guest spot on 'Coke Studio' (Arabic version)--a music show that airs weekly on the Arabic TV station MBC--by re-recording her classics and well as other traditional Arabic songs in a new way that fuses Eastern and Western beats in what might be labeled as an alternatively ingenious way.

Coke Studio is a unique music show, hosted by Michel Elefteriades, that is different from every show that is airing on television. It is a show that brings together an Arab artist and an international artist to collaborate and record an original fusion song meshing two or more unique genres of music. The week Nancy appeared on the show, Oriental Music met Flamenco Music as Nancy Ajram met Jose Galves who comes from a pure Gypsy Spanish tradition. They came together to create a fusion where Oriental Pop met Spanish Flamenco music.

Here are some video clips of Nancy Ajram memorable performance on the show which aired in May 2012. For more on Coke Studio (Arabic Version) visit  https://www.youtube.com/user/CokeStudioBel3arabi
