Description: Reda Troup Best Song - ElhagallaThe Founding of the Reda Troupe: An Historical OverviewTo talk about dance in Egypt in the last fifty years, one must consider the Reda Troupe and the powerful impact it has had on Egypt from artistic, social, and cultural points of view.The Reda Troupe began as a family affair. The Reda's and the Fahmy's were brought together through marriage and their joint interest in dance and Egyptian tradition and culture. The marriage of Mahmoud Reda to Nadeeda, Farida Fahmy's sister, and the marriage of Ali Reda, Mahmoud Reda's elder brother, three years later to Farida further strengthened these ties. Mahmoud Reda's ambition to present a new genre of dance, and Farida Fahmy's strong desire to dance, were the catalyst for a successful and fulfilling artistic enterprise. Mahmoud Reda was lead dancer until 1972. He taught the dancers, and choreographed and directed all stage performances. With his ground breaking choreographies he created a genre of dance that embraced many styles. Farida Fahmy was lead dancer for twenty five years. She was a role model for the recruited dancers, and her grace and elegance instantly captured the hearts of the EgyptiansThe Reda BrothersMahmoud Reda was born in 1930 in Cairo, into a large middle-class family. His father was an author and chief librarian of Cairo University who, with his wife, raised a family that was immersed in their cultural heritage and in step with the modernism that was sweeping Egypt at the time. They were a family that pursued athletics and were musically inclined. The environment in which Mahmoud Reda was raised was instrumental in fostering his artistic tendencies; and his physical attributes (being a member of the gymnastic team representing Egypt in 1952 Helsinki Olympics) helped further his abilities as a dancer.The late Ali Reda was already an experienced man in the world of show business. At the age of 16, he was winning prizes in ballroom dance events and competitions that were popular at the time, excelling in such dances as the swing and jitterbug. He later turned his career towards filmmaking. In the formative years of the Reda Troupe, he functioned as artistic advisor and attended to all administrative and managerial problems. He directed two feature films in the genre of musical comedy for the Reda Troupe. These films are now regarded as corner stones in the history of Egyptian cinema, and are shown on television to this day.Ali Reda's earlier experience in show business and his strong personality became important factors in regard to the successful development of the Troupe. One key decision that he made was introducing the innovative and extremely appealing music of the late Maestro Ali Ismail to the Reda Troupe. Ali Ismail blended western instruments with traditional Egyptian instruments, and presented traditional music with a new and fresh approach. He was an important asset to the Troupe and soon became a renowned composer in Egypt. His compositions have inspired many generations of Egyptian musicians to follow in his footsteps
