"Mehanna is a virtuoso keyboardist, composer, arranger and pioneer of the oriental synth who was by no means a stranger to those very same Golden Age musicians. He began as an accordion, organ and synth wizard in the illustrious orchestras backing the supreme Umm Kulthum, divas Warda and Fayza Ahmed, as well as the inimitable Abdel Halim Hafez, as part of the legendary troupe known as Al Firqa Al Masiya. Along with the visionary yet blind Ammar Al-Sheriyi, Mehanna was instrumental in the development of the oriental keyboard by experimenting with oscillators to play quarter tones – this paved the way for keyboards earning a permanent role in modern Egyptian music."
