Dear Mr. Dangoor,
Let me introduce myself, My name is Jamal Al- Atawi, I am
an Iraqi song- composer, I play on Ud and TRUMPET as well.
Also I can represent myself as a junior Music Theorist,
specialized in the Iraqi Jewish Music and Songs.
In all my years of searching and surveying, I was looking
for Shabahoth - Iraqi Jewish songs, Done by Hagguli Shummel
Darzi, Selim Daoud, Yishaq Maroudy, Shlomo Mouallim and
the Israelite Choir.
Here in Iraq, we don't use credit cards in common or in
the local and the international Banks, for the bad circumstances
we are facing nowadays.
Can't your cousin, the Iraqi have the records of those legendary
singers and gain a big step in my processing throughout
I wish i can pay all the money I got, just to let my kids
whom there are musicians too, (they played UD and QANOUN)
to recall the songs done by those great Iraqi Jewish singers.
like Shir Hashirim, and Yom yom Oodeh. the ones I collected
from a Makam Singer, Taha Ghareeb, he gave me those songs
and others recorded from our great broadcast Qol Yisrael,
but unfortunately damaged by a piece of magnet in an accident.
I hope this conversation will make something.
Give us a list of the Shabahoth you want and
we will sing them for you.
Thank you for the compliment, I received the Tape you've
sent.....Very appreciate it.
The best that i got, is your gift.You really made me happy,
i'll use these songs im my searches.
Thank you again.
