Product Description:

She had the musicality of Ella Fitzgerald, the public presence of Eleanor Roosevelt and the audience of Elvis Presley.

Born a peasant at the turn of the last century, legendary Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum earned a position of great wealth and influence. She was a powerful symbol, first of the aspirations of her country, and then of the entire Arab world. Four million people filled the streets of Cairo for her funeral in 1975, and to this day her songs outsell those of many contemporary Arab female vocalists.

Narrated by Omar Sharif, Umm Kulthum, A Voice Like Egypt takes viewers into her home village and to the streets and cafes of Cairo where she lived and worked. Featuring concert footage, film clips and interviews with the famed singer's friends and colleagues, Goldman's documentary places the life and career of Umm Kulthum in the context of the epic story of 20th century Egypt.

  • Umm Kulthum Filmography
  • Insightful New Director Commentary

    One of the first world-music releases to reach Western ears (originally issued in 1968), this album rightfully established Hamza El Din as one of the leading instrumentalists on the lutelike oud, which he taught to guitarist Sandy Bull and others. The three tracks that comprise this disc, all lengthy improvisations, showcase El Din's remarkably fluid technique and his Nubian roots, whether on the traditional "Song with Tar" or "I Remember," which was originally performed by Egypt's greatest diva, Om Kalthoum. Perhaps the best example of El Din's instrumental meditations, however, is the title track, which is his own composition. Its lines ripple and sway, then stop to ponder and work around a phrase before moving on--a style unique at the time, but which influenced a generation of oud players that followed. A masterpiece. --Chris Nickson

    Product Description:
    Composer and arranger Grayson Wells combines samples of ancient Middle Eastern instruments and ethnic rhythms with a contemporary sensibility. At times,'Eternal Egypt'takes the listener into a market in North Africa or, on the track "Palace Of Ra," into modern Cairo's late night disco scene with its pulsating world beat. Also featured is Richard Graham, an authority in ancient Egyptian history and musical methods. Graham displays his talent on various intruments that have been passed from the age of the Pharaohs, such as the nay, darabuka, riqq, tar, crotale, Ighaita, and more. Together, Wells and Graham successfully create a musical masterpiece that, while owing much to traditional Middle Eastern music, is meant to reach a wider audience without sacrificing the integrity of the source. An exciting CD combining the past with the Digital Age, 'Eternal Egypt' encompasses traditional belly dance arrangements, pulsing tribal beats, and unique soundtrack effects.

    Product Description:
    This compilation focuses on the music of four countries -- Egypt, Algeria, Sudan, and Morocco. The focus is mainly on contemporary popular forms, but tosses in a bit of roots here and there. Rai is featured heavily throughout the album in its various incarnations from Cheb Mami to Cheb Khaled. Nubian music is also featured in multiple incarnations, from the brassy but relatively traditional work of Ali Hassan Kuban to the newer fusion-influenced Salamat. The beats of the Arab world are thoroughly showcased on this album, and anyone itching for a quick look into the genres of North Africa should pick up this album for its rather comprehensive coverage of the genres, as well as relatively extensive liner notes on the histories of the various forms. The only notable omissions here would perhaps be the ritual music of the Gnawa of Marrakesh, but despite this minor missing detail, the album is a worthwhile listen for someone with any level of experience with the music. by Adam Greenberg
