Ah Ya Salam : About
This site aims to convert all the “treasures” of the golden era of Arabic music of
the 20th century to the digital age of MP3 players such as the popular iTunes and
iPod (iTouch, iPad, iPhone) players (*).
To accomplish this target, we are not concerned in just getting the best quality master pieces
and convert them to MP3, We also gather all the information known about them
and embed it in the MP3 file using a universal multilingual ID3 tagging method.
All the information seen on the site (such as the composer,
lyricist, year, album, genre and Maqam and the lyrics) is first written on the MP3 file,
then we read the data from the MP3 files and save them in a database which can be queried
in many ways to get the best search and categorization results.
Here are some pictures to show how the songs are displayed in the different media browsers:
We also aim to recover all missing songs from private collectors and share it with our
visitors as well as with other forums and sites focused on authentic Arabic music.
We could recover and distribute important songs for Fyrouz and Wadi Safi.
