"In June 2001, on the occasion of the second Music Festival, the Institut du Monde Arabe paid a resounding tribute to the great lady of Arab song. The same concert, an exceptional event, was then given as part of the 'Les Orientales Festival' at Saint-Florent-Le-Vieil. It brought together a new generation of performers from various Arab nations such as Karima Skalli (Morocco), Abir Nasraoui (Tunisia), and Riham Abdelhakim (Egypt), accompanied by the National Arab Music Ensemble of the Cairo Opera, conducted by Salim Sahhab. This album offers you live recordings of the best moments from the two concerts, as well as some of the most beautiful and moving songs associated with the 'Star of the East.'"
