The article highlights principal points of this text and identifies its many borrowings from earlier music treaties. The author, who was born in India, had the opportunity to compile these sources, which attest of the wide diffusion in Northern India of the Persian musical culture and of the Greater Khorasan.


Hanene Gharbi (حنان الغربي): تحليل الخطاب الموسيقي لمحمد عبد الوهّاب من خلال أغنية أنت عمري”, Near Eastern Musicology Online 6 10 |2021-11| p. 47–87.

The author proposes a stylistic study of the song “Anta ʿUmrī” composed par Muḥammad ʿAbd-al-Wahhāb and sung by Umm Kulthūm. Through techniques used by the composer along with Kulthūm’s interpretation, she demonstrates the coexistence within the song of traditional and modern elements.
