They call her 'The Rose of the Nile', 'The Queen of the Nile', 'The Daughter of the Nile' or even 'The 4th Pyramid of Egypt' since she's known as the greatest Egyptian singer of all times. Om Kalsoum's mythical life story of a poor peasant girl who grew up to become the face of Egypt is a 20th-century fairytale. Almost half a decade after her death the power of her music and singing is still moving the hearts of milli-ons of people worldwide. At the end of her overwhelming career she was introduced to the young but brilliant composer Baligh Hamdy who wrote this 30 minutes lasting monu-ment for her in 1970. In the footsteps of Mohamed Abdel Wahab, the godfa-ther of Egyptian modern music, Baligh Hamdy refreshed the classical Egyp-tian orchestra sound with the addition of stylish instruments like electric gui-tar (Omer Khorshid), organ (Hany Mehanna), accordeon and horns that were adapted to the eastern tonal system. Together with the immortal "Alf Leila we Leila" (parallel release SMR001), "El Hob Kollo" must undeniably be ar-chived under the best recordings ever made in music history!
