Jala Bel Kas, by Abdullatif Al-Kuwaiti

One of Salim Rashid Suri's musical idols, Abdullatif Al-Kuwaiti recorded for the German Odeon label in 1928 and 1929 in Baghdad and Cairo, including this stately example of 'sowt', which also features the brothers Daoud and Saleh Al-Kuwaiti (no relation to Abdullatif) on the oud and mirwas hand-drum respectively.
