Oum Kalthoum; "the Star of the East"

I remember a couple of months ago having a conversation with my mother about Oum Kalthoum. How this amazing woman was rather influential and is remembered in Egypt and the Middle East as one of the greatest singers and musicians who have ever lived. "More than three decades after her death, she is still recognized as the Arab world's most famous and distinguished singer of the 20th century."

I could listen to her for hours on end. Actually, I have been listening to her for hours...
