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.

Oud music with نميري حسين Nemiri Hussein

Nemiri Hussein

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.
