Antique dealers, second-hand markets, auction showrooms, music lovers, music historians, amateurs and the rich are cornerstones of the wondrous world of vintage vinyl records.

The rich history of oriental music and record labels runs from the end of the 19th century until the mid 1950s, through companies such as Gramophone, Odeon, Baidaphone, Meshian, and Polyphon. There was vernacular free verse (adwar gheyanaeyya), couplets (taqateeq), odes, Quran recitation, religious chanting and more. And when the competition between the companies came to an end, the floor was yielded to fierce competition between amateur record-collecting music aficionados, record dealers and Gulfie moneybags.

Record companies

Records entered the Egyptian market toward the end of the 19th century, a little less than two decades after Thomas Edison’s invention of the phonograph, later known as the gramophone or record player, in 1877. Abdo al-Hamouly (1836-1901) and Youssef al-Manialawy (1850-1911) are said to be the first to record on wax records, then called cylinders. This type of record is rarely found in Egypt. Some can be found in the University of South California’s Cylinder Preservation and Digitization Project.
