The track presented here, “Vive L’amour“, is one of the song compiled on an Egyptian record released in 1966 and is a very innovative for the time, mixing Oriental rhythms and Occidental Jerk influences – Enjoy !

Fayrouz – Ya Mayla (Lebanon, 195?, Pathé / Voix de l’Orient)

No need to introduce Fairouz (“Turquoise Blue” in Arabic), the greatest singer from Lebanon who recorded several dozen of songs, albums and theater plays, who was married Assi Rahbani and who is the mother of the well known Rahbani brothers.

Born as “Nuhad Rizq Wadīʿ Ḥaddad”, she is one of the most widely admired and deeply respected living singers in the Arab world.

I decided to make you rediscover a very early and rare song from the Diva, “Ya Mayla”, a romantic Bolero sung in Arabic language – Enjoy !
