Arabesque music on the radio

Arabesque music is a fusion genre that blends Arabic and Western musical styles. It originated in the Middle East in the 1960s and has since spread to various parts of the world. The genre is characterized by the use of traditional Middle Eastern instruments such as the oud, qanun, and darbuka, as well as Western instruments like the guitar, bass, and drums.

One of the most popular artists of Arabesque music is Fairouz, a Lebanese singer who has been active since the 1950s. Her music is known for its poetic lyrics and emotive melodies, and she has been called the "voice of Lebanon." Other notable artists include Amr Diab from Egypt and Najwa Karam from Lebanon.

These stations not only feature music from popular Arabesque artists but also showcase up-and-coming artists and new releases. Listeners can tune in to these stations to explore the rich musical traditions of the Middle East and beyond.
