During the first hour we listen to music from the Arab world. As we approach the 9/11 anniversary, I think is important to look at the culture the government and the media demonizes. We first listened to the Arab world’s greatest singer, Oum Kalsoum performing Azkouriny. Then after that we listened to the premier Muezzin from Aleppo, Syria, Sabri Moudallal. Besides singing religious chants, he also sings the classical Wasla style. He sang Wasla Madath Nabawiyya. We finnish off with Allaoa Zerrouki, one of Berber sings of the Kabyle, Algeria.
