SHREM'S DOUBLE TROUBLE: "Tango el Amal" - Nour Al Houda - نور الهدى - تانجو الأمل /// "Tango" - Soapkills

Lebanese singer and actress Nour al-Houda, recorded more than 100 songs during a career that spanned more than 60 years. I couldn't find the info on the time of the release of this rare piece of Arabic tango but I'm guessing it goes as back as late 1940's. The second track is the absolutely phenomenal and enigmatic rendition of the song by Lebanese Underground's finest duo Yasmine Hamdan and Zeid Hamdan vel Soapkills. They used samples of the legendary Mohamed Abdelwahab too. What a feast for Orient loving ears like mine :-)
