Ok. This thread is pathetic, and I will change this reality. As Arabs only use their internet skills to add people on facebook and send messages like "u r so sweety", I thought it's time I'll just share my knowledge. I don't know much, a lot less then other people living here, but I'll try my best, and maybe get the ball rolling.

For now, I have talked in my journal about Fairuz, and Raï music. Plus Bulldog has covered Marcel Khalifé, and we can count Anouar Brahem in.
So to check them out:

Fairuz
Raï Music
Marcel Khalifé
Anouar Brahem

As for now, I'll try to update this thread as much as I can. It's either with Arabic speaking songs, or with Arabic artists not necessarily singing in the native language. If you need any links, I know some blogs that only have Arabic music, so just give us a shout.

Edit: I'll try to talk about the ones already mentioned in this thread, for a start. As no one felt the need to do more than throw names.

That's what I got from Wiki:

Quote:
Ethiopiques is a series of compact discs featuring Ethiopian and Eritrean singers and musicians. Many of the Ethiopiques CDs compile various singles and albums that Amha Records, Kaifa Records, and Philips-Ethiopia released during the 1960s and 1970s in Ethiopia. Prominent singers and musicians from this era appearing on Ethiopiques releases include Alemayehu Eshete, Asnaketch Worku, Mahmoud Ahmed, Mulatu Astatke, and Tilahun Gessesse. However, some Ethiopiques releases are new recordings.
So as it seems in Eritrea, one of the official languages is Arabic, so I can see why some of the Ethiopiques songs are in this language. I'll try to check them out, maybe get some album, but I'm predicting the music would be purely African... so I'll check them out.

Any specific songs you feel I should listen to at first?

The music is airy, atmospheric and kind of pure, if you mean "African" as in drum driven, then no it is not.

Check out The Very Best of Ethiopiques as a starter, if you like it go through the volumes there are I believe around 20 of them
