Abstract :

In this article, we tried to highlight three genres of latin genres (tango, rumba and  samba) influence on the modern egyptian music in the 20th century. We choose to analyze three works : “Ahwak“ and “Sahirtou minhou al-layali“ by Mohamed Abd al-Wahab and “Wayyak“ by Farid al-Atrach. We worked with graphics, spectral forms and transcriptions to analyse melodic and rhythmic variations of these three works.
