Emta Hata’raf

Here comes another post that will interest no one other than myself, but a few weeks ago I wrote a post where I mentioned that I was looking for the original version of the song “Emta Hata’raf” by Asmahan. And then just now (while procrastinating at work), I found this video on YouTube of a film with her singing “Emta Hata’raf”.

Asmahan was a Syrian Druze who made a name for herself singing and starring in Egyptian films, but died suddenly and mysteriously in a car accident in 1944.
