Music of Jordan
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The music of Jordan can be distinguished from that of its neighboring countries like Syria and Saudi Arabia by its strong Bedouin influence. Zajal songs played with a rabab and reed pipe ensemble accompanying is popular. The Bedu singer Omar Abdullat is perhaps Jordan's biggest star, known for his nationalist anthem "Hashemi, Hashemi".
