Today Francesca is going to take us on a little journey, using a song.

Francesca has her degree in Oriental Languages and Literature for Arabic, and is using her knowledge to bring us how Arabic poetry has had, and continues to have a lasting influence on the lyrics of modern arabic songs.

Knowing some of this background helps us to better understand the emotional impact of these songs and appreciate they beauty of the lyrics.

The song she’ll use briefly as an example here is Zoom Sur Oum by Rashid Taha, which samples a song that I know you know.
