How to play Zorooni Kulli Sana Marra of Sayyid Darwish on Oud – كيف تعزف زوروني كل سنة مرّة على العود

This time we’re posting a video tutorial on how to play the famous song Zorooni Kulli Sana Marra on the Oud instrument. Please keep in mind that this is a simplified version of the song that is meant as a tutorial for inverted Risha technique (Risha Maqlouba) on Oud. It also includes the sheet music of the song itself.

The scale is B flat Major or Maqam Ajam Asheeran in Arabic music.

Free sheet music of Wa Habibi وا حبيبي

Good Friday, which occurs on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, is a religious holiday commemorating the passion, crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. Many hymns and songs have been composed for this day, among them is the Lebanese song Wa Habibi which became famous by Fairouz.  Note: The melody itself is based on an old English religious hymn and was adapted for the Arabic lyrics.

This week is a Christian Holy week and Good Friday occurs this Friday. On this occasion, I offer you a meticulously written sheet music of Wa Habibi وا حبيبي. I transcribed it myself based on Fairouz’s studio recording of the song. (Note: In some of her live renditions, Fairouz sings it on C minor or B minor. D minor remains the most common).  I included the chords, the lyrics in Arabic as well as the transliteration and translation in English.  I also suggest in the sheet music the places where Fairouz does the vocal embellishments (Orab). Note: Orba عربــــــــة or Orab عـــرب in plural is a vocal embellishment done by the singer on one specific letter of the word that is being sung. It is an Arabic singing technique more or less similar to the runs and riffs but generally with much faster tempo and shorter intervals between the notes.

Please visit the Free Sheet Music page to download the file and listen to the song.
