About Mohamed Reda:
Mohamed Reda developed an amazing musical and artistic sensibility at an early age. As a youth, he was influenced by icons such as Mohamed Abdelouahab, Oum Kalthoum, and Abdel Halim Hafez. Before his career as an author, composer and performer, Mohamed Reda was interested in painting and sculpture. Some of his works were even exhibited in renowned galleries Marrakech and Essaouira.
In order to focus his career on music, Reda trained extensively at the conservatory in Marrakech for 4 years. Afterwards, he participated in many festivals in Morocco and abroad. This experience developed his reputation as a popular singer. He then composed and performed several songs that achieved genuine success. The title Arfod won 1st prize at the Arab song festival in Casablanca in 2000, and the 2nd prize at Dubai Festival in 2001.
He passed a new milestone in his musical career by recording his first music videos Mawada, Khalass Hassibak, Chahlet the Aayani and Brawni N’ssak that were ranked among the best clips of Moroccan and Arab channels. While continuing to work with Moroccan authors and composers, he recorded several songs and participated in many Arab and Western festivals. He received the 2nd prize for Arabic song at the Alexandria Festival in Egypt.
In 2006, he released the album, My Story, which was produced by DJ Youcef. The album became an international success and is distributed in over 30 countries. For nearly two years, he devoted himself to the stage and performed on a global tour to meet his fans worldwide. This allowed him to perform on the most prestigious scenes, including the Opera Carmen and the Olympia in Paris.
In 2009, Mohamed Reda played a part in the album, Rai n’b Fever 3, where he sang duets with Vita and Amel Bent. The record sold over 100,000 copies in France.
In 2010, he released his first “Best Of” album. The album included some unreleased duets with artist Hassan Idbasaid and rapper Raiss. This album is still having great success. The same year, Reda made note of his commitment to the territorial integrity of Morocco by participating in the great march of Washington organized to denounce the actions of the Spanish Government and demand the resolution of the conflict in Western Sahara.
