Biography

Azar Habib (عازار حبيب) (November 28, 1945 - November 15, 2007) was a composer and singer. He lived in Marjayoun until he was four years old and then his family moved to Beirut. He was mostly known for his love ballads and for mixing traditional Arabic music with modern western pop.

He was most popular in Lebanon and Syria. One of his most recognized pieces outside Lebanon is "Habbeetik", which inspired Hatten är din, a Swedish flash animation which gained worldwide popularity as an Internet phenomenon.

Early life

Azar Habib was born on the 28th of November 1945 in Marj Oyoun, Lebanon. He lived there until he was four years old and then his family moved to Beirut. As a child, Azar loved painting and drawing which led him to study Painting and Architecture when he grew up. At the age of 18, Azar's interests were focused on music and that was when he started playing the guitar. In 1962, along with some of his friends, Azar formed a music band and called it "Los Diavalos" and later changed its name to "Los Cavalieros". The band used to sing the famous western songs of that time for Enrico Mascias, Johnny Holiday and all the stars of that era. Azar Habib is considered to be one of the very first creators of the new style in music at that time which mixed western music with eastern music. Critiques and artists of the time believe that it is Azar Habib who made it possible for modern music to benefit from the light western rhythm and the meaningful eastern words and rich music style.

Azar Habib.. The Patriot

Unlike most singers who sang for the love of their countries, Azar Habib dealt with this love inside him for 'Home' in a different unique way. Instead of singing to the cedars and the green mountains and the snow falling on top of the meadows in winter, Azar sang for the people inside 'Home'. Instead of singing to a specific country, he sang to the lover, the friend, the father, the daughter inside the country. Azar said, "Each country in the world has its own charm and beauty. I don't want to speak of the beauty of my country, I want to speak of the beauty of the people in any country. I want people from all nationalities to listen to my songs and think, this is MY country".

Azar Habib died in Lebanon of a heart attack on Thursday, November 15, 2007.
