Umm Kulthum

Um Kulthum was the first singer to have a musical style composed specifically for her. The style consisted of a band dominated by string instruments, specifically the Qanun. The headboard in the room mimic the ends of the Qanun, emphasizing the importance of this new music style. Moreover, an old radio is used as a side table with a microphone resting a top, as Um Kulthum used to broadcast her songs every Thursday on the radio. The listeners used to wait patiently by the radio weekly, excited to hear what this great singer had in store.
