Violinist Abdu Dagir, known as Malik at-Taqasim (King of Improvisation), is considered one of Egypt's best. Growing up, his father punished him for his love of music. His father, a violinist himself, wanted Abdu to become a lawyer. Abdu left home and ended up sleeping in mosques and streets. At age 14 he became a professional musician and played at village festivals. At age 20 he moved to Cairo.
