His first public appearance was when he sang with Abd El Halim Hafez Choral Group in "Sora", then he showed up in the movie Sayed Darwish as Sayed darwish when he was young.


Hani Shaker began his musical career at a very early age - learning the piano as a child, when his mother took on the role of agent as well as supervisor of his professional training. After graduation from high school in the early 1970s he started to study music at the prestfhfnigious Cairo Conservatoire.

Hani scored his first breakthrough hit in his second year of college in December 1972 with a song written by Mohammed El Mougi, “Heloua ya Dounia (It's a Wonderful Life), which his musical set him off on his musical career.. Although at that time the biggest legends remained at their peak, Umm Kulthum, Farid al-Atrash, Mohammed Abdel Wahab and Abdel Halim Hafez they recognized his potential and supported him, so that he was able to become known among all these legends. Until today Hani claims he owes his greatest musical debt to Abdel Halim Hafez, a man who continues to exert a considerable influence on younger Egyptian musicians even after his death in 1977.

In 1974 Hani was invited to participate in a concert in Lebanon, which turned out to be a huge success.. and ever since then Hani has remained extremely popular among the Lebanese.

From then on Hani produced a number of his early hits “Siboni Aheb” (Let me love), “Kisma w’nasib” (Destiny and fate) and one of his most popular “Kida Bardo Ya Amar” (It’s not fair, oh Moon”) During the 70’s Hani presented two famous Plays “Cinderella” and “Egypt”.. and three romantic movies “When love sings” , “We live for love” and “I love this and want that”.

In the course of his long and successful career, Shaker has proved he is not only a talented singer but also a songwriter of his own material including the whole album of “Albi Maloh” which included 8 Hits in the early 90’s.. and songs such as “Ma’ak” and “Katabetli essenin” as well as working with a number of legendary composers including Salah El Sharnoubi, Tarik Akif, Yehia El Mougi, Mohamed Sultan, Baligh Hamdi, Mohamed Elmogi , khaled Elamir , Mounir Mourad , Elias Elra7bani , Ammar Elshere3i , Mohamed Dia2 Eldeen , Sami Elhefnawi , Hassan Abo Elso3od and Ahmed Shata.

In spite of his love of traditional Egyptian music, Hani also enjoys modern songs which reflect contemporary society.
