Umm Kalthumwhat about this record? On the other hand, she was pretty terrified of live performances. I’ve long been enamored of Fairuz, even the Euro-kitsch arrangements that so often accompany her voice.

I know that a lot of Arabs I’m assuming you are, based on the name you’re using, but of course it could be a screen name find it strange that people who don’t speak the language would enjoy this music, since everything tends to be built around creating a setting for the lyrics, but there’s still a lot of enjoyment to be gotten out of it without knowing the words.


I don’t really love Amal Hayati though. Also, the seriousness of the announcers is great.

However it was rakoun I may have met you, I apologize: I have one of those CDs. Amateurist, the Diva series is all early recordings pres, from what I recall.
