Om Kolthoum, from a simple abode against all odds and odes of old Arabic poetry had moved from rags to riches. Thanks to her talent, spontaneous creativity, inspiration, perspiration and patience in tribulations and impressive, expressive sonic persona she had risen from the image of a Bedouin to the celestial spirit of a nation. While Om Kolthoum remained a student all her life, she led a veritable revolution in Arabic music. Hers is the ecstatic voice of perfection and reflection, of authenticity, resistance and triumph, the voice of Egypt -- the many layers of genius.
