This presentation explores the music industry in the Arab world, and attempts to understand why there is yet to be an Arab artist to reach the status of Fairuz, Sabah, Abdel Halim, or Umm Kulthum. This is done through understanding contemporary Arab pop culture, the music video phenomenon, and the finances behind it all.
