Meet Um Kulthum’s Granddaughter Posted by on Jan 10, 2017 in Arabic Language, Culture

Marhaba! I do not need to introduce you dear Arabic lovers to the one and only Um Kulthum. She is a legend and her songs have filled the houses of millions and millions of people in the Arab world and beyond. Lots of media channels have discovered that Um Kulthum’s beautiful voice has lived on. After watching a couple of YouTube videos, it became quite hard for me to differentiate between Um Kulthum and her reincarnation.

As always, I want you dear Arabic lovers to discuss the most recent and trendiest developments in the world in Arabic. For this purpose, I am sharing a news story about the reincarnation of Um Kulthum in the form of a listening comprehension exercise from Al Arabiya. I want you all to always work on perfecting your listening skills. As always, I have some questions for you to answer. I have also shared a beautiful video that truly shows Um Kulthum’s reincarnation. Good luck! Share your thoughts on the news story on this page and/or via our Twitter/Facebook pages.

1) How is the singer known as ‘the granddaughter of Um Kulthum’ related to Um Kulthum?
2) What is the singer’s name?
3) How old is the singer?
4) How was she ‘discovered’ or came out as an artist?
5) What is one of the Um Kulthum songs that she sings?
6) Will the first album of the singer be based on Um Kulthum’s songs or her own songs?


For now take care and stay tuned for the answers soon!
Happy Learning!
Have a nice day!!
نهاركم سعيد

About the Author: jesa

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
