The life of Abdel haleem Hafez had always wavered between periods of happiness and sadness. His childhood was a difficult one as he was a poor and struggling orphan. His history was always present in the melancholic tone of his voice. Soon after, his music developed a sense of optimism as he began to sing about the beauty of nature and more importantly, about love. This was the period during which he fell in love with a mysterious lady that he kept a secret for the rest of his life. In 1956, his Bilharzia infection started to worsen and once again, the somber themes in his music returned. Thus, the room’s dark colours that gradually shift to brighter hues illustrate the shifts from happiness to sadness throughout his lifetime.
