FARID AL ATRASH | ABDEL HALIM HAFEZ | WARDA


This coming Wednesday, December 9, from 7-10 PM, Bodega Pop Live on WFMU's Give the Drummer Radio will spin three of the greatest live performances ever recorded: 

Farid Al Atrash's soulful "Awaal Hamsah," which opens with some 10 minutes of the most jaw-droppingly amazing oud playing you've ever heard, to say nothing of the superstar's deeply passionate vocal rendering

Abdel Halim Hafez's heart-breaking "Mawood," which includes not only Hafez's hands-down most gut-wrenching vocal turn ever, but some bonus funky fretwork laid down by Arabic music's greatest guitarist, Omar Khorshid

Warda's super-fierce "Ahdounu al-Ayam," one of the Algerian legend's slowest burn live performances, recorded at the height of The Singer of Her Generation's powers.
