Mohammed El-Bakkar. [flash with sound] The Man... The Myth... The Legend? Some great music, and the cover art isn't bad either.

Look out, there are some real earworms in here, check out Mnishebak (From My Window) from Dances of Port Said. I do think the sightings might have been shopped though.
As heard on the Jean Shepherd show and Fanny the Broadway musical.

El hora el hawara (circle dance) is such an earworm. Excellent find.

tellurian, absolutely fucking outstanding link. Thank you.

I took it to be a parody based on the intro, but damn that's some fine music. I've been looking for a version of Ya Habibi with male vocals for a couple of weeks now, and I love Middle Eastern music in general. Most of the stuff I collect is less-soft (I'm hesitant to call it 'hard') than this, but it's all good.

(Those 'sightings' are just slightly sus...but damn he gets around. Slut.)

Thanks again.
