Looking for Modern Arabic music?
I'm looking for some music in Arabic, to listen to. (motivation and to see how much I like Arabic) I tried google and google translate and youtube and couldn't really find anything. There was a lot of English music with Arabic titles. I think I found 1 song that was modern and Arabic, and that had singing in it. I used phrases like music and modern music translated to Arabic and tried to search in google and youtube. I also looked for "Egypt Music" and didn't get what I was looking for.
Examples of music I usually listen to (Arab Indie):
Ya Bay - Aziz Maraka (Jordanian)
(And if you can appreciate some Icelandic shouting, this (Palestinian+Icelandic) won't disappoint you - this music style isn't everyone's cup of tea and maybe a little too intense for most people, but definitely modern)
Examples of songs my mom listens to (Arab pop):
3 Daqat - Abu Ft. Yousra (EG)
Ma Balash - Hamaki (EG)
Masha'er - Sherine (EG)
Krahni - Elissa (LB)
7elm B3eed - Mahmood El Esseily (EG)
Yetamelo - Amr Diab (EG)
Naseny Leh - Tamer Hosny (EG)
And old but gold:
Ask me if you need more! :)
"Sharmoofers" are one of my favorite Arab hip-hop artists, and Khaled is a French-Arabic speaking artist from Tunisia that has some pretty addictive songs (C'est la vie).
And as always, Fayrouz and Um Kolthoum are the 2 classic musical titans of the Arab world.
Hi! I myself also look for Arabic music to help understand words better and I really recommend going through playlists on Spotify! One playlist I really enjoy for example is "Arab indie" (by Spotify itself) Found like that a couple songs I really liked! For example: sharmoofers - khalas hasaytar bachar mar khalife - lemon Mashrou leila - fasateen (And more of course ;) )
