The album recorded in public mixes traditional Arabic music with a tinge of 70s
grooves. On 'Khalik Hena', Warda delivers a hypnotic performance backed by her
full-size orchestra, who had also helped make famous songs by Oum Khalthoum,
Farid El Atrache and Abdel Halim Hafez. It is written by legendary composer Baligh
Hamdi, who was by then also her husband.

'Khalik Hena' blends traditional and modern instrumentations (electric guitar, organ)
and the music is both complex and groovy. It has been sought after by Arabic diggers
and collectors alike for many decades.

An undisputed classic of Arabic Music and not available on vinyl since the mid 70's. This
release features the original LP artwork, remastered audio and a 2-page insert featuring a
new introduction by Mario Choueiry from Institut du Monde Arabe. Choueiry is the
curator of the Arabic Wewantsounds series of reissues.
