The Narareth Orchestra / Lubna Salame
Oum Kolthoom - The Anniversary Tribute (Magda Records, Israel)
Ifrah ya Qalbi
A special tribute album in honor of 100th anniversary to the legendary singer Oum Kolthoum, the Diva of Arab music. This album includes innovations to her greatest songs - "Enta Omri", "Al-Atlal", "Ghanni Li Shwayya Shwayya" and many more.
The emotion and strength emerging through Lubna Salame's vocal work are similar to Oum Kolthoum's practice. In her singing, Lubna gives the familiar songs fresh and interesting new life, while keeping her own unique taste and depth.
The Nazareth Orchestra with vocalist Lubna Salame recorded this performance live at the "Peace Festival" in Tel Aviv, June 2003.
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
