Arab Music after 1932, with particular consideration of "Al-oghneyah" (canto)
The world of Arab Music in the last decades has been shaped by the transition from artistic music to generally commercial use of music. The dimensions of this development shall be demonstrated following the example of Egypt with the help of analysis and pieces of music, performed by Tahia Shams el-Din. The lecture also intends to point out the danger that nowadays threatens the tradition of artistic music.
