Album Review

Kaltsoum, Oum – “Vol. II (1926-1927-1928)” – [Club Du Disque Arabe]

humana   7/26/2014   CD, International

One of the best ways to appreciate a culture is to know its music, and vice versa. This second installment in documenting the musical life of “the Grand Lady of Egyptian singing” contains examples of the range of the amazing voice set against simple musical accompaniment of strings (sitar- and violin-like). Read the liner notes to learn how a little five-year-old from humble beginnings took a talent and ran with it.
