Rabab, a Star Fades

Tribute video for Iraqi singer Rabab who passed away this the UAE. Even thought she was born in Iraq, she sang for Kuwait and all other Arab countries. She has been making music in the Gulf since before I was born.

in 1990 Kuwait banned her from coming home where she was a citizen and delivered the music music for that country and everyone else who would listen.

She had her beef with the stars of the Gulf style music who have either ignored her or dismissed her while covering her old music and old lyrics. There she goes and she will be missed, I know in my early days in the UAE in the 80s, she was the talk of everyone on TV and radio.
