Arabs in America come in different flavors. There are those attached to their roots who live their lives as if still in the old country, and those who have melted and became fully assimilated in the American society. And many others are scattered across the spectrum, from segregated to totally accultured and integrated. This is not unique to our Arab-American community, migrant communities often evolve and develop many similar characteristics over the years, especially here in the US. In this episode we share our “non-scientific” observations as we discuss what we have witnessed from our vintage point as the Arab American Café patrons.. 😉We invite you to listen and enjoy.

According to Wikipedia, the Qudoūd Ḥalabīya, literally means “musical measures of Aleppo” and are based on old religious melodies collected mainly by Aleppine musicians. Their themes are most often love, longing and spirituality. The lyrics vary according to the type of event, be it for religious or entertainment purposes. Singers use deep vocals to reach a peak while holding a long note or repeating a phrase, sending their audiences into what is referred to as tarab, or exultation. Qudoud is a vital part of Aleppan culture and is viewed as a source of resilience, particularly during war. The UNEESCO inscribed Qudoud in 2021 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.Listen to Mouhanad in the podcast talking about this interesting topic, especially for those of us who are in love with traditional Arabic music. Please support our work by subscribing and rating this podcast.
