The pendulum swung full over to nothing but Mizrachi music in all the media , which to western ears is very Arabic lilting wailing music -and hurtful to accept this style. Furthermore years back I did write how the words are repetative just like when praying and when crying. Sarit Hadad who has a lovely voice she documented /sang all the good old songs BUT in a very arabic lilting wailing manner - which changes the historical value of those early songs Not every singer is a Pavarotti -some are just awful and cannot sing . There are good groups out there not being heard on the radio and the TV, because they are not mizrachi , example listen to the group SULEMA.
