Excellent!
Do you know who the muscians are that accompany her? Not quite the same, but reminds me of Oum Kaltsoum...

@ Feq'wah- All I know about them comes from Wikipedia: "L'Ensemble de la Paix, a small band of Arabic instrumentalists which she leads." And yeah, I was also reminded of Oum Khalsoum- though the beauty of her music is clearly edgier...less clositered, if you will...
