The death of the Saudi composer Talal Bagher, affected by the complications of the Corona virus


Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN)–The Saudi composer Talal Bagher has died at the age of 65, due to complications from infection with the Covid-19 virus.

His son, Ryan, announced the news of the death through his Twitter account, Thursday, declaring that condolences would be limited to messages and contact only, “given the current circumstances due to the Corona epidemic.”

The late artist had announced his infection with the Corona virus on May 24, despite receiving two doses of the virus, and “taking all preventive precautions,” according to what he wrote before on his Twitter account.

Bagger was keen not to negatively affect those hesitant to take the vaccine from his citizens, and appeared in a video recording for the newspaper, “Okaz”, in which he said that receiving the vaccine contributed to alleviating the symptoms of “Corona”, and advised them to take it, thanking the Saudi Ministry of Health for the efforts it is making in this field. .

But his health apparently deteriorated later, and he was subjected to isolation in the intensive care department in one of the Kingdom’s hospitals, and work was being done to treat him from infections caused by the virus, before Ryan Dagher announced yesterday that his father had entered a critical stage during the last hours of his life.

The late artist has many tunes that he presented to the great Saudi singers, such as the late Talal Maddah, the Arab artist Muhammad Abdo, Abadi Al-Jawhar, Abdul Majeed Abdullah, Rabeh Saqr, the Egyptian singer Nadia Mustafa, and the Moroccan singer Samira Said.

Talal Bagger chaired the music committee of the “Saudi Arab Society for Culture and Arts” in Jeddah, which called him with moving words, as many Saudi artists mourned him, and singer Muhammad Abdo said in a tweet via his Twitter account, that he lost a “close friend and dear brother” with Bagger’s departure.
