This Corona stuff really sucks ey! Since we might all be bound by borders for a while, we’d like to come together and share some happiness in the shape of a playlist or mix!
In the next days and weeks, check out Safe & Sounds, where we will figuratively introduce you to and put you in touch with music whizzes, featuring their selections, collections and picks from all around the globe.
Be “Safe & Sounds” and wash your hands!
This is the playlist that came to mind when I thought about the essentials that defined what I grew up listening to. They are songs I would take with me to my grave.
Tania Saleh is a contemporary alternative Lebanese singer/songwriter/visual artist, one of the rare female singers/songwriters in the Arab world and one of the most respected independent artists in the region. Her lyrics mirror the reality of the Lebanese/Arab social and political turmoil.
Since her early debut in 1990, she has experimented with various genres, always challenging herself to explore new styles (musically, lyrically and visually), which has resulted in a fresh and original mix of Lebanese alternative artforms. She revives traditional Arabic music like tarab, mawwal and dabke but also experiments with folk, alternative rock, bossa nova, jazz and most recently electronic music.
