    Do you have a link to the vintage-y version, just to have to something to compare with?
    I've got an album called Princess of Cairo, tributed to Nagwa Fouad, but I wonder if it could be the first tune of that or not.

    The same piece of music is sometimes called 'Enter The Rakkasa'. It was recorded under that title by Sami Nossair Orchestra, for example.

    You can also get the original 'Princess of Cairo' album on CD. Retro, but I love it

    There's a qanoun version on Gems of the Middle East by Mimi Spencer and Mary Ellen Donald. If you like qanouns, this one is worth a listen. Mimi was a very skilled musician.
