Pop music

Like other Arabs, Palestinians adore Arab pops. In supermarkets, hair salons, restaurants, there are TV monitors showing Arab pops shows.

Popular musicians are from Lebanon, Egypt or Turkey. Recently, Palestinian singers become very popular too because of a big TV show, Arab Idle.

Visit CD shops in souq (marketplace), and ask a shop assistant which is good for beginners. There sell compilation albums of popular songs.

If you could sing a Arab pops, Palestinians get so excited!
