omar khorshid – rakset el fadaa (1974)

the late omar khorshid remains an iconic legend of the arab world, though he’s received  little international acclaim

born in cairo in 1945, the glittering age of egypt’s cultural reinvention, khorshid was soon to become one of its luminaries and most well-known, if short-lived, voices

he is regarded as the greatest guitarist the arab world has ever known
