DAMASCUS, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- Sabah Fakhri, an iconic tenor singer from Syria's northern province Aleppo, died on Tuesday at the age of 88 at a hospital in the capital Damascus.

The information ministry and the artists' syndicate in Syria mourned the death of Fakhri, without naming the cause of death.

Born in 1933 in Aleppo, Fakhri popularized the classical Arabic music of Aleppo called Muwashahat and Qudud Halabiya. He was awarded the Syrian Order of Merit of Excellent Degree in 2007 in appreciation for his distinguished achievements in the service of Syrian Arab art.

Fakhri held positions as head of the Artists Syndicate, vice president of the Union of Arab Artists, and director of the Syrian Song Festival. Enditem
