Talih Hamdan and spring choir, one of the most Lebanese iconic voices and one of the best traditional Lebanese Zajal choir . Talih Hamdan also known as Abu shadi began his career in 1963, his first concert with great poet “Abu Ali” Zain Shieb. In 1964 he joined ” Zaghloul Al Damour” Troupe witched he worked with until 1975 when he founded his own troupe “ Al Rabih” troupe ( Spring choir).
Lebanese zajal is a semi-improvised, semi-sung or declaimed form of poetry in the colloquial Lebanese Arabic dialect. Its roots may be as ancient as Pre-Islamic Arabic poetry, but various similar manifestations of zajal can be traced to 10th-12th-century Moorish Spain (Al-Andalus), and specifically to the colloquial poet Ibn Quzman (Cordoba, 1078-1160). Zajal has close ties in prosody, delivery, form and spirit with various semi-sung colloquial poetry traditions, including such seemingly disparate traditions as those of Nabati Poetry of Arabia and the troubadours of Provence.
