This music is for heavy doses of Arabic entertainment, it's so concentrated that is may not be suitable for everyone.
Growing up my uncle used to be a big fan and always crank up the volume of the radio when a song of Farid al-Atrash air. Dad was not a big fan but he liked the guy and some of his songs. So in honor of all those who appreciate the gifted and well-rounded entertainer, here are some of his finest songs, about 12 of them.
You are an old soul and you know it. Farid lead a tragic life and he was controversial figure at some point--family and political drama. This examples why the man has a legend status pretty much anywhere in the Arab world. We would be dammed not to mention his lute and how astounding his skills are.
