Oum Kalsoum - Yally Kan Yshgeek Aneeny


Hello to all :).
i have been exploring this song a lot lately:

https://youtu.be/za2kiZPxFRg

This song is in the hijazkar kurd maqam with very effective modulations.
The recording sounds like a 1940's period Oum Kalsoum to me.

Can anyone help me with any information on this song please?

This site is a useful resource:
http://almashriq.hiof.no/egypt/700/780/umKoulthoum/Songs/

According to them, it's by Riad al Sounbati and was composed in 1949

Thank you Brian.

The site you linked to is exactly what I was looking for :).

I have been also listening to Raq el Habib
https://youtu.be/DBDhNWwwsOc - and stumbled on this blog; it has some interesting comments and analysis as well as different recordings.

This is the info' from the Al Mashriq site on this one:

Raqq il-habib, composed in 1941 by Mohammad al-Qasabji and Ahmad Ramy in the Nahawand maqam, Ughniyah form.

Ghana el Rabea is another one from the same (CLASSIC AS!) period (1940's) of Oum Kalsoum's recordings.

Ghanna al-rabi, composed by Riad al-Sunbati and Ahmad Ramy, Maqam Rast, Ughniyah form (Al Mashriq site).
