الأصوات والاستماعات
vocal singing and auditioning

Vocals & Auditioning

vocal singing = الأصوات، الغناء بلا موسيقى، قوة الصوت وجودته
vocal auditioning = السّمـّاعي، غناء القصائد أو المواويل والشعر والبحري بالاعتماد على السمع

(ps: auditioning here not to be confused with audition tests, etc)

you might be able to find some info here

فن الصوت يتعلق بالإيقاع الصوتي وعلى القوة اللحنية للصوت الإيقاعي، ولا يحتاج لمصاحبة آلات موسيقية وغالباً ما يرافق الغناء آلات إيقاع فقط كالطبل والدف، وهو فن اشتهر به المغنيون الكويتيون ومن بينهم عبدالله الفرج وعبدالله فضالة وعبدالله الكويتي
وهذه وصلة لنماذج
أما السماعي، فهو فن عربي وشرقي خليجي وعراقي وتركي وفارسي وغيره، ويرتبط بوصلة غنائية تعتمد على النغمة في الأذن أي على السمع ويكون اللحن فيه موزوناً على الإيقاع

من الطبيعي وضع الكلمتين كما هما باللغة العربية، ولكن يجب إضافة ترجمة مختصرة بين قوسين لإيضاح المفهوم للقاريء الإنجليزي
ويمكن تسمية الصوت باختصار بعبارة
Rhythm Vocal Singing
والسماعي بعبارة
Tune Vocal Singing

disagree  Fuad Yahya: Randa, with your access to zeryab.com, you should know that the sawt is a specific musical form, with a specific rhythmic pattern and compositional structure. It cannt be translated to "vocal singing" any more than "opera" can be translated to "works."

  -> should have briefed my answer to "rhythm" for sawt and "tune" for sama3i. as for opera, it can be translated as مسرحية غنائية موسيقية or a musical composition play
