Mohammed El-Bakkar – Ah Ya Zain (Lebanon, 1960s, Pianophon)

For today, I wanted to share with you “Ah Ya Zain” (“آه يا زين“, that could be translated by “Oh you, handful person !“), a dope percussive Dabke (middle eastern drum) Folk track and a classic Arabic wedding song.

Said by many sources to be based on a portion of Turkish song “Muhabbet Bağına Girdim Bu Gece” originally recorded in the 40s by the musician Yesari Asim Arsoy, and covered a hundred of times through the years by many artists (Mohamed Qandeel, Sabah, Safiye Ayla, Omar Khorshid..), I decided to present you here my favorite version and probably one of its earliest in Arabic, the one recorded in the late 50s by the Lebanese composer Mohammed El-Bakkar and his Oriental Ensemble – Perfect to belly dance your dance floor, so.. enjoy Habibi !
