Three Maqams by Yusuf Omar 1918-1987
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yususf Omar, the great maqam singer, is singing three maqams in this CD, recorded in 1972:
1. Maqam Al-Husaini, followed by the song: Dithibni alehum.
2. Maqam Al-Hilailawi, followed by the song: Aboudi jay Al-Najaf.
3. Maqam Saba, followed by the song: Ya bintu enich alee.
I recommend highly this CD for its artistic value and the great performance of Yusuf Omar, very nostalgic.. It contains a booklet with valuable information on the art of maqamat, it also discusses each maqam. Written in English, French and German by Dr. Shehrazad Hassan..."
Maqam Baghdadi by the great Yousef Omar
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is priceless material. There is only one other cd (a double cd) of Yousef Omar and his band in existence."
Moving emotion, priceless history, relaxation.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"No question that this is quite a rare experience, and the fact that it was well recorded is an amazing bonus! Loud and clear, music with emotion, I feel as though I am sitting on the same ground as these artists. It is an amazing piece of work, and will create a greater appreciation for a culture so radically different than our modern society. If you are looking for an experience of relaxation, understanding, and unique entertainment, this CD will no doubt take you on that journey and beyond."
