    Nexhmije Pagarusha (born 7 May 1933) is an Albanian singer and actress from Kosovo.
    Her musical creative work lasted for almost 40 years, and it is very hard to say, which genre she belongs to, because she sang almost all of them. Her interpretations in folk music were exactly as perfect as her interpretations in the classic music, especially opera. Pagarusha is loved by the music critics and adored from the music admirers. She is called Bilbili i Kosovës (Nightingale of Kosovo), queen of Albanian music, etc.
    The song Baresha (The Sheperdess) is one of her most popular songs. It was composed by her husband, Rexho Mulliqi and the text was written by Rifat Kukaj. Pagarusha played in many theatre stages and movies and also as an actress she won many prizes.

    Born in Tirana, Albania, in 1981, in an artist family,Elina Duni makes her first steps on stage as a singer at the age of five and sings for the National Radio and Television.
    In 1991 after the fall of the communist regime, she arrives in Switzerland and settles in Geneva together with her mother where she starts the classical piano and discovers jazz.
    Some musical, film and theater projects after, she studies singing and composition at the Hochschule der Künste Bern, in the jazz department.
    During this time she develops the Elina Duni Quartet with Colin Vallon on piano, Patrice Moret on double bass and Norbert Pfammatter on drums – which represents a return to her musical sources, a combination of Balkan folk songs and jazz.

    There is a rising star from Nazareth, Galilee. She is a Palestinian named Dalal Abu-Amneh. She is a neuroscientist and researcher at Technion, in Haifa, where she is completing her doctorate.
    She is inspired by the Egyptian singer, Fatima Baltacı, known in the Arab world as Um Kulthoum, and by the Lebanese singer, Nuhad Haddad, known as Fairouz.

    In this clip she sings the words of an Egyptian-Tunisian poet, Mahmud Bayram, who was exiled from Egypt by the British (around 1920), for his inflammatory remarks and sentiments against occupation and colonization.
    His pen was an instrument of "the resistance" and of "liberation."

    She is singing it in the mawwal style, which is usually a poem, and a long and drawn out "introduction," prior to a main song, which carries a different rhythm. The maqam (melody) is in the Hijazi mode (Phrygian), which is meant to evoke the desert.

    Roughly translated (my wife and I struggled to translate it), the poem is called: "By Your Favor, (my Lord)"

    By Your Favor, O my Creator!
    Not by my desire, nor my wish.
    With Your Hand you created my voice,
    Created my senses.
    I have propagated with my voice, O my Lord,
    ...my aim and my wish,
    ...when I beg of You,
    ...and when You hear my complaints.

    My avatar is the Turkic-Bulgar symbol of the Mamluk sultan, Baybars, whose name means "chief leopard." He transplanted the steppe-style comitatus and postal system to the sultanate, and installed his secret couriers to operate it. (My surname is a relic of these Kipchak-Cuman couriers.) This leopard symbol is often found on structures he commissioned throughout Palestine. A similar one is used as the emblem of the Kazan Tatars, and is portrayed as a snow leopard, Aq-Bars.

    I've always liked old Spanish (Andalucian) music.

    By the way, her surname Alaoui, means "Levite" in Arabic.

    Soulblighter, I enjoyed the first 2 clips--very relaxing actually.

    Your family is from the same place as the family of my college roommate.
    His great grandfather was a Prince of Arcot, in Madras. Their surname was Wallajah.
