ROUWAIDA ADNAN





Here's a lovely 7" from Syrian singer Rouwaida Adnan, and a BIG thank you to Tim Abdellah who does the excellent http://moroccantapestash.blogspot.co.id/ for telling me who this is... Tim wrote this in the comments:

The artist is a singer named Rouwaida Adnan (رؤيدا عدنان), apparently a pop singer of Syrian origin (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jl3YVNIlYk)

Although the record label reads "Made in Greece". The disc appears to be produced for PRIVATE consumption in Saudi Arabia. The bottom line on the sleeve front reads "The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia" (المملكة العربية السعودية), and the bottom of the record label reads "Broadcast of this disc on the radio is forbidden"!

  1. Hey Henk - this file contains the same recording as the file linked here: https://madrotter-treasure-hunt.blogspot.com/2016/11/unknown-arabian-artist.html
    Did you upload the same file twice by mistake?
