Oum Kalthoum, la voix du Caire

Return
40 years ago, the “Star of the East” died. Her death was mourned worldwide, giving rise to scenes of collective grief. A real “Poor People’s Singer” in her lifetime, she was venerated in Egypt, throughout the Arab world, and beyond. Through the power of her song, her unique voice that captured the crowds, and an exceptional repertoire, she achieved the unheard-of feat of sweeping away the barriers between peoples—which, to this day, no politician has ever successfully done.
