(vandaag 59 jaar geleden)
(Inspirée du Folklore / Paroles et musique: Bob Azzam et Eddie Barclay)

(A-kant 1: Mustapha (Folklore – Arrangement Bob Azzam)

(B-kant 1: Tintarella di luna (Le petit clair de lune) (Franco Migliacci – Bruno De Filippi)
(B-kant 2: T’ho vista piangere (Arturo Casadei)

(Het is moeilijk om de herkomst van Mustapha te achterhalen, maar het is vrijwel zeker dat het liedje Noord-Afrikaanse roots heeft, hoogstwaarschijnlijk in Egypte. Op schrift gezet in het Arabisch als محمد فوزي (Ya Mustafa) door tekstdichter en zanger Mohamed Fawzi (1918–1966). Eén bron vertelt dat het liedje voorkomt in een oude Egyptische film. Zeker is dat het een meestamper is in het hele Midden-Oosten!)
