In this 3rd episode on Sayyed Darwish, let's look at one of his most famous songs, قوم يا مصري, once again written by بديع خيري - a "patriotic" song with a difference. In it, Egypt talks to the Egyptians ahead of the 1919 revolution, reminding them of past glories, and reprimading them for what they have done to it in recent times.

The version we'll listen to excerpts from today is sung by Mohammed Mohsen (pictured). As usual, all verses are explained in English.

As you may know by now, Bilmasri is now on YouTube, so you can listen to this episode while reading the Arabic and English text on screen here, or alternatively, go the old pdf/ audio route, whichever works best for you!
