More golden oldies.
I couldn’t find an actual picture of this artist, and there was very little information about her aside from general information about women artists of her generation (artists like Aisha al-Falatiya, active around the 1930s-1950s). Women artists of this era were innovators because they sang contemporary music in the same style as their male counterparts.
Anyways, this is good stuff. I especially like those drums on track 3.
I’m a sucker for these keyboards. You’ve never heard anything like this before.
Find it here.
More wonderful oldies.
Fans of عائشة الفلاتية Aisha al-Falatiya will definitely want to check this one out.
Here it is!
I can’t find any info about this musician, so if anyone knows more about her let me know! Since I couldn’t find any pictures of her, I used this painting by Yoseph Abate.
These tracks drew my attention with the flute versus lyre sound, and by the singer’s unique style.

A cappella aside from hypnotic drums, and consisting of call-and-response between the singer and a chorus, the singer’s powerful voice is the main attraction here. It’s contemporary (I believe these recordings were made in 2014).
Music for a slow moving Sunday afternoon.
I believe the oud player is named عوض احمودي Awad Ahmoudi. I honestly don’t always like oud-based stuff… every Sudanese musician has a bunch of recordings with oud accompaniment, and I often skip them. It’s similar to how every American or European rock star has an “acoustic” album… sometimes they’re great, but mostly they’re not very interesting.
These songs are really wonderful. The singer has a powerful voice (think Kouyante Sory Kandia) and the oud player is very good.
More classic stuff.
For fans of Abdul Aziz Mohammed Daoul and Khalifah al-Attrawi. What makes this singer stand out is that silk smooth voice.
For some reason, the song titles keep disappearing from archive.org. Find below a track list with the duration of each song:
