This thread has sunk deep although it is really important to reflect our music.
Here is my contribution.

From: http://blogs.voanews.com/african-mus...mdurman-songs/ < Click this link to list to the songs.

The largest city in the Sudan, Omdurman, is the country’s economic and cultural capital (as well as being home to the Sudan’s three most popular soccer clubs). For the last seven decades, this city located on the West Bank of the Nile River, has exerted a magnetic pull on the Sudan’s most talented singers, poets, composers and instrumentalists. This was especially true in the two decades immediately following Sudanese Independence (January 1, 1956) from Britain; years remembered today as the Golden Age of Sudanese music. These were the years during which the National Radio, located on Neel Street on the shores of the Nile, and known throughout the land as Radio Omdurman, was the only gateway to national recognition and a successful musical career.

Created by the British Colonial, administration Radio Omdurman first took to the airwaves in 1941 and from the very beginning music programming was a cornerstone of her broadcast schedule. During Radio Omdurman’s first two decades, all of the music that was broadcast was performed live in the studio. By the early 1960s Radio Omdurman had acquired tape machines, and were organizing regular recording sessions featuring the Sudan’s most talented singers, backed by the Radio Omdurman Orchestra. This orchestra was built on a swinging string section that included violins (the first generation of Sudanese violin players were trained by Ezo Maestrelli, an Italian engineer who came to Sudan to work for the country’s railway system) and cellos, a rhythm section held down by several percussionists and an upright bass, and featuring the melodic embellishments of a piccolo flute, an accordion, an oud and/or a guitar. To be featured on Radio Omdurman an aspiring artist had to survive the rigorous audition process; the radio relied on several different quality control committees, there was one which judged a singer’s talent, another committee that scrutinized the instrumentalists, a committee that examined the quality of musical compositions, and a final committee that looked at the poetry and lyrics.

One of the results of all this effort was a new repertoire of modern songs that fused Egyptian and European orchestral influences with Sudanese rhythms and melodies. (There are over 400 languages spoken in the Sudan, and an equal diversity of regional musical styles and rhythms, my impression, however, is that most of the regional rhythms that were part of the matrix that created Sudanese modern music are from North, Central and Western Sudan.) This new repertoire was so intimately linked to Radio Omdurman that this style of music eventually became known simply as ‘Omdurman songs’. By the late 1980s, with the opening of several private recording studios and the arrival of a culturally repressive Islamic regime, this Golden era of Sudanese music had come to an end; the official Radio Omdurman orchestra was disbanded in 1994. In the early 1970s, Radio Omdurman gave the VOA several reels featuring a selection of the Sudan’s most popular artists in a variety of musical styles. These reels include some of the country’s most famous songs.

Tayeb Abdalla was born in 1940, in the town of Shendi, located 150 km northeast of Khartoum on the east bank of the Nile River. He started his professional career as a teacher but was always drawn to music. In the early 1960s he started performing with a regional theatre troupe, and it was with this company that he first drew the attention of Radio Omdurman’s music programming staff. Blessed with a sensitive and emotional voice, Tayeb was asked to record with the Radio Omdurman orchestra, and made his radio debut in 1962; over the next twenty years he would record over forty songs for the radio. In 1980, Tayeb Abdalla left the Sudan and moved to Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where he worked for a newspaper for six years. He returned to Omdurman in 1986, before leaving once again for Saudi Arabia in 1992. For the last seventeen years, Tayeb Abdalla has lived in the Red Sea port-city of Jeddah, two hundred short km to the east of the Sudan. He continues to perform for the large Sudanese community in Saudi Arabia and is currently finishing a new CD that should be released in early 2010.

This song is one of his most famous. The lyrics of ‘Ya Fathati’ were written by the poet Tayeb Mohammed Said El Abbasi. The scion of a well to do Sudanese family, Tayeb Mohammed spent several years studying in Cairo, Egypt, and during these years he fell in love with an Egyptian student. His love was not reciprocated and Tayeb Mohammed channeled the pain of his rejection into the lyrics of ‘Ya Fathati’. The song explains that his love was rejected because of the color of his black skin. ‘Love has no color, no country, my darling, loves comes from the heart’, sings Tayeb Abdalla.

Ibrahim Awad, or as his fans called him ‘the Sudanese Elvis Presley’, was born and grew up in the ‘Hay el Arab’ neighborhood of Omdurman, which for generations as been the city’s musical heart. He was the first Sudanese artist to appear in an Egyptian movie, back in the early 1950s, and by the time he made his debut on Radio Omdurman he was already a megastar in the Sudan. Always nattily dressed in sharp suits, Ibrahim Awad was also the first Sudanese singer to dance on stage, and he recorded hundreds of songs for Radio Omdurman. He passed away, in ‘Hay el Arab’, in May of 2006.

This next song was composed by Ibrahim’s friend and neighbor, the composer and accordion player Abdel Lateef Khider. Abdel Lateef was also born in the ‘Hay el Arab’ neighborhood, and for twenty five years, from the early 1950s to the mid 1970s, was the principal accordion player of the Radio Omdurman Orchestra. In the late 1970s he moved to Qatar, where he joined the Radio Qatar orchestra. He still lives in Qatar, and continues to work with the Qatari police and military orchestras. He composed around a dozen songs for Ibrahim Awad. In ‘Ya Zemen’, Awad sings ‘Oh time, give me a break. I have had hard times; I need a few moments of joy, of happiness, after that you can have my life’.

More than any other singer of his generation, Sayed Khalifa, is responsible for the popularity of ‘Omdurman songs’ throughout the Muslim Sahel and the Horn of Africa. A dynamic performer, Khalifa won fans throughout Africa with his reinterpretations of classic Sudanese songs in the national languages of his African audiences. He was born in 1928 in the village of Ad Dibeiba, not far from Khartoum, and in 1947 received a scholarship to study at the Arab Music Institute in Cairo. He made his first radio broadcasts, on Egyptian radio, during these student years, and in 1956 wrote his name into Sudanese history with his recording of ‘Ya Watani’ a patriotic song praising Sudanese independence. Like many of his musical peers, Sayed Khalifa’s career was curtailed by the Islamic regimes of the late 1980s, with some of his more sensual songs purged from the Radio Omdurman archives. The great Sayed Khalifa passed away on July 2, 2001 while undergoing treatment for heart disease.

His most famous song, and one of the Sudan’s most well travelled melodies, is ‘El Mambo Soudani’. The music was composed by Sayed Abdel Ray, and Sayed Khalifa himself composed the lyrics. This song has become a staple of Sudanese wedding bands, and was also the title of the 1998 Piranha records ‘El Mambo Soudani’ by the Cairo based group Salamat (Sayed Khalifa appears on the group’s 1998 CD ‘Ezzayakoum’). After encouraging his listeners to dance the Sudanese Mambo, Sayed Khalifa sings of his beloved, of her beauty and graceful silhouette, and of the suffering she puts him through.
