Oum Kalthoum sings one of her legendary songs.

Today we will hear Oum Kalthoum in a live performance of one of her most famous songs, "Alf Leila Wa Leila" ("One Thousand and One Nights"). This ecstatic, passionate live performance in front of an enraptured audience shows why she was one of the world's greatest artists. Next week we will hear the French-Lebanese trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf in his instrumental transcription of this work for jazz quintet, which he will be performing in Montreal next Friday.
