1991 reissue, originally released in 1964. Includes "Hoi To Irkil Fagiu (The Message Bearer)" (featuring Ahmed Abdul) and "Nubala (Nubiana)" (featuring Sandy Bull, bongo drum). "The songs and instrumental pieces performed here by the young Nubian musician, Hamza El Din, based by him on the traditional songs of Nubia, have more than a high intrinsic beauty... The Oud (also known as Ud, and Al'ud), is an oval, wooden-bellied string instrument, in which originally the neck was an extension of the body instead of being a separate attachment."
