Azam Nemati writes: The "Music of Islam Vol 1: Al-Qahirah Music of Cairo" CD was given to me by an Abadani girldfriend for my birthday -- along with some magnificent Iranian jewelry. The title shocked me, since my friend knows me well. But the curious in me decided to listen. What a delightful surpirse!

It would have been more appropriate to name the album, "Music of the Islamic World" since the music in this and others in the series are a collection of classical performances from Muslim countires. This CD, volume 1, covers classical Egyptian music which is wonederful to listen and dance to.
