Arabic music list

What genres of Arabic music do you listen to? What genres of music are most popular in the Arab world? I want to find some traditional but also kind of pop-ish.

I like Souad Massi الحفلة كاملة - سعاد ماسي في الجزائر and Ahmed Mekky أحمد مكى , أغلى من الياقوت , حصريا

Souad Massi is from Algeria but lives in France, I think. She is an women's rights activist at fled under threats of violence. One of her recent albums is classical Arabic Poetry set to music.

Ahmed Mekky is of a hip hop/ rappish genre but his lyrics seem to be uplifting and positive towards women.
