WARNING. LISTEN AT OWN RISK No. 15
Known as ‘The Voice of Egypt’ Umm Kulthum rings around the house this morning, cranked up loud, her raw emotion and incredible vocal range ever splendid. “Enta Omri” is such a complex mixture of regret and hope, we are torn apart and swung to the heavens at the same time.
My husband looks at me.
“Song of Devastation?” he says.
“Absolutely,” I answer.
Sometimes you just need some Umm Kulthum.
Love, Susie x
