Ali Hassan Kuban (1929, Gotha, Egypt – 2001) was a Nubian singer and bandleader. He was known as the "Captain" or (later) "Godfather" of Nubian music. Ali Hassan Kuban was born in Gotha, Egypt, a village near Aswan. After his family moved to Cairo, he learned to play the clarinet, and in 1949 he performed with the Opera of Cairo. He also played girba (bagpipes) with his own band during wedding celebrations.
When precisely Ali Hassan Kuban’s legendary recordings, released internationally by Piranha in 1988, were made, nobody knows any more. What we do know, recordings had taken place at Delta Sound . in Cairo – with the orchestra’s entire line-up circled around the only working microphone at hand.

Augmenting classical instruments like the oud, tar, and darabouka, Kuban beefed up his bands with amp-ready guitars, organ, fender bass, and keyboards. This was back in the late '50s. Kuban continues to tend to his "day job," playing many weddings every year and producing other acts in Egypt and neighboring Sudan, but he has also been able to cut many fine albums like this one from Shanachie.
