Music Composer Tamer Karawan Composes the Sound Track of Heba Regl Al Ghorab TV Series
Through composing different music with a rapid rhythm that arouses the viewers' curiosity for the world of fashion, Music Composer Tamer Karawan attracts the audience to the world of the comedy TV show Heba Regl El Ghorab which stars the young aspiring comedian Emmy Samir Ghanem. Produced by Sony Pictures Television Arabia, the new comedy show screens nowadays on OSN television network.
Heba Regl El Ghorab is an Egyptian adaptation of the popular American TV comedy Ugly Petty, this induced Tamer Karawan to create a new music with a different taste. "I tried to compose something different for Heba Regl El Ghorab; I wanted to give an Egyptian oriental flavor to the music to fit the characters and to carry at the same time the sense of humor that prevails in the series," comments Karawan.
Comprised of 180 episodes divided on two seasons, the show tells the story of Heba, a not-your- typical-type- young girl, who joins one of the most reputable fashion houses in Cairo as the assistant of the company's CEO Adham. She faces several obstacles in getting used to the new place while she's trying to win her boss's heart who gets into too many troubles.
