Qanun music comes in a wide variety, but what is the genre of this sharp toned version of qanun music?

The video indicates that it is an extract from an album titled "Music of Islam, Volume 1: Al-Qahiroh (The Music of Cairo)". I find this music to be a thousand times better than other qanun tones, really very emotional.

This is the instrument for the people who don't know it.
