The Classic Arabic Playlist You Didn’t Know You Needed

By: Jana El Hini

Oldies feed the soul; whenever we listen to them, we involuntarily get overwhelmed with emotions. When I was putting this playlist together, I found myself reminiscing, remembering family gatherings that were filled with Umm Kulthum and Abdel Halim’s magical voices.
