Makadi Nahhas is a contemporary Jordanian singer with a traditional twist. In this video she sings a traditional Iraqi song that was originally performed by the Iraqi renowned female singer Zuhor Husein 1918-1964 (the second video). Makadi adds to it the nice tone of her voice and updates the music to give it a contemporary flavor. In addition to the music, the Arabic songs, especially the old ones, are heavily based on poetic lyrics or a message. This one is not an exception.
The difference between the two generations is evident, but nice to listen to.
