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.
