Lupe Fiasco - Much More off the Trials and Tribulations mixtape

Dalina by Dudu Tassa and The Kuwaitis.

Dudu Tassa is an Israeli singer, song-writer and producer. His 2011 album “Dudu Tassa and The Kuwaitis” is based on materials recorded by his grandfather and his grandfather’s brother, Saleh and Daoud al-Kuwaiti who were popular in Kuwait and Iraq in the 1920-1950s.


Lyrics in Arabic:

دَلينا بالهوى قبلك, بالغنا 

زهرة ولا خبر منهم, بلغنا

يا نار الشوق ما تطفي, بالغنا 

تطفي من جلك بتعودك عليا

يا ربي ساعد المغرم وعينا 

أيام الناس تفتح مواعدها 

سر النجوم وحدنا وعينا 

هذا المحوب ظلمني بأذية

بدلالك خلصت روحي ويهلك 

يهم إلي نظر حسنك ويهلك 

إلي بيوم الحجر وقفا ويهلك 

هذولا إلي حرموا سوفك عليا

There used to lie a neighborhood called Baba Amr here in Homs City …. this is what’s left after Assad’s forces were done with it.
Thanks @SYRIAslyJana

Ki Nikham by Ari Goldwag. This is an a capella song, which is the only music religious Jews can listen to during days of mourning in the Jewish calender as instruments are forbidden during those times.

Hebrew: (Isaiah 51:3)
כִּי נִחַם ה’ צִיּוֹן נִחַם כָּל חָרְבֹתֶיה
וַיָּשֶׂם מִדְבָּרָהּ כְּעֵדֶן וְעַרְבָתָהּ כְּגַן ה’
שָׂשׂוֹן וְשִׂמְחָה יִמָּצֵא בָהּ תּוֹדָה וְקוֹל זִמְרָה

Translation:
For the Lord will comfort Zion,
He will comfort all her waste places;
He will make her wilderness like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the Lord;
Joy and gladness will be found in it,
Thanksgiving and the voice of melody.

Transliteration:
Ki nikham Hashem Tzion, nikham, nikham kol khorvoyseho
vaYosem midboro keEden veArvoso keGan Hashem
Soson veSimkho yimotzey vo toydo veKol zimroh

Sign reads: “After the elections, the people will live in prosperity [رخاء. ruhaa’]”
Man: “I feel there’s been a switch between two letters in the last word”
The word khara (خراء), shit in Arabic, is produced by switching between the first two letters of the word.
