Abstract

Asmahan, born Amal al-Atrash, of the Suwayda' branch of the Druze al-Atrash clan of southern Syria, achieved fame in Arabic music and cinema from J 938 until her death in 1944. My general acquaintance with Asmahan dates from my late teenage years, when I went mad for Arabic music. I learned one of her songs in the early 1980s from a gifted musician, my friend Simon Shaheen - "Imta Hata' raf Imta".
