What is the name of this piece?


I have attached a sound sample of a piece that I'm sure I should know, but don't. Can anyone enlighten me?

Thanks,

Greg

hey Greg,
Its Bint el Chalabiya from Fairuz but in a really slow tempo.
listen to Ahmad Fathi's take on it.

Thanks mate. I knew that I'd heard it, but I couldn't place it.
I love this slow version.
I have the sheets for Bint el Shalabiyya, but it appears to be a different song. Does anyone have the sheets for this piece?

Regards,

Greg

Fayruz just sings it - it is old folk.

Thanks very much Marina, much appreciated. I guess I should have done it myself, rather then be lazy. You did a better job of it than I would have, anyway. :applause:

Thanks again.

The first link posted by Greg is definitely bint el chalabiyya interpreted in a new age atmosphere, especially known from Fairuz and Rahbani Brothers but I doubt the Rahbanis composed it, I think it is a traditional tune from some country.

Hi everyone;
I'm wondering if it's not the vrsion played by Omar Bashir...it reminds me of his style when he was younger.

As for your question Oud Freak, the iraki traditional musical repertoire contains the same melody, used in some folk songs well known in irak...

Hi everyone,

The original old song is called al-Uzobeyya and is considered to be old Shami folk (Kād), you can get the sheet at http://www.alsiadi.com/AL_UZOBYA.htm

I really like this piece and it was the first thing I learned on oud as it's one of Nazih's party pieces.

All the versions I've since heard (whether called Al-Uzobya or Bint el Chalabiya) have been in nahawand with b natural (if you take c as the tonic). But as I remember it, Nazih played it with b flat. Has anyone else heard it played this way?

PS Marina - I've also heard it used (presumably with different words) as a pizmon and I think it might be on David Betesh's excellent pizmonim website. Just shows how these tunes get around.
