If you aren’t familiar with the magic that is Oum Koulsoum (or Umm Kolthoum or whatever; there are a million ways of spelling her name in the Roman alphabet so take a deep breath before googling) consider this your formal introduction.

    Looking forward to checking this out… By the way, the recent Shadia post was really amazing… I bought a few of her tapes, mail order, from Brooklyn’s RASHID sales, but the one you posted is the best I’ve heard from her.

    Thanks a lot for these recordings.

    By the way, the second album is “SALOU KOUOUS ATTILA” written and composed by RIAD SOUMBATI and AHMED CHAWQI (1946)

    … and yes, Shadia post was amazing. By the way, if you wanted to post something from Angola, I guess you could do better than Bonga… are you aware of the new sound called Kuduro?
