Raph Cormack is author of Midnight in Cairo: The Divas of Egypt’s Roaring ‘20s, which chronicles the lives of many of Egypt’s biggest stars of the early twentieth century. 

Show Notes: 

The Amar Foundation has an archive of Mounira al-Mahdiyya songs such as the one we end the show with, "اسمع اغاني المهدية"  

Raph also wrote about “Queer Life in Cairo in the 1920s” for the Gay and Lesbian Review.
