A reader named Ali wrote to us asking,

“Hello, I know an Arab song in the 1990s, I forgot the title. Well, I have listened it in the 1990s, I don’t know if it was released in that period.

All I know the rhythm has something like: “talalalaaa takalaaaa talalaaa laaalaaa” well similar
like that… I don’t know Arabic language so difficult for me to know.

Can you tell me if you know? I know there was violin I think in it or a similar instrument usually forms part in Arabic music.”

I don’t know which song he’s thinking of. It could be many Arabic songs, from the description. Does anyone have a clue?
