Hossam RAMZY and his Egyptian Ensemble .... Egypt / UK
Mawwal El-Oshaa - The Lovers' Chant 6'04
(Egyptian Raï) [ARC Music]
The first of four very well produced and recorded discs on this program from a fine percussionist who moved to the UK in 1975 to further aim of disemanating Arab culture through his music. This piece features Samy El-Babli on trumpet, and as the title of this disc may suggest, his aim here is to unite the Arab world with selections that represent all parts of it.

Om KOLTHOUM .... Egypt
Ya Messaharni - I'm losing my sleep over you 8'30
(Ya Messaharni) [Sono Cairo]
The legend herself, who spellbound the Arab world with regular concert broadcasts. This recording is probably one of them.

Hossam RAMZY & Ensemble .... Egypt / UK
Ala Hesb Wedad Galbi 5'30
("Kouhail") [ARC Music]
The name of this disc is the term used for an Arabian stallion, and apparently a test of a thoroughbred is to play it some of this distinctive Saaidi dance music, because they can't resist dancing to it!
