Abdelhadi Belkayat and Abdelwahab Doukali, market leaders of the initial influx of big-time Moroccan pop music, both began singing in the 60s. Both had been inevitably inspired by Egypt, and even spent period there. But neither merely “proceeded to go Egyptian,” and both actually ended up worldwide stars. In extremely broad conditions, Belkayat is similar to Egypt’s Abdel Hali Hafez. Doukali is certainly a far more dramatic vocalist with lusher and somewhat more ambitious backings.
