Om Kalsoum, or Umm Kulthum, was an Egyptian singer, born in 1898.
She was known as ‘Kawkab A Sharq’ or ‘Star of the Orient’ and seen by
many as the greatest female singer in the Arabic world. She was known
for her extraordinary vocal ability and style and sold over 80 million records
worldwide. ‘Is Al Rouhak’ which we have today appears on Sono Cairo and
should be from around 1970 some five years before her passing away.
