Carol Samaha paves the way for Gulf fans
Lebanese singer Carol Samaha is placing great emphasis on her upcoming music video for the song "Nazalt Al Satair" (I Closed the Curtains), which is sung in the Gulf accent and is part of her latest album “Ana Hura” (I’m Free). The new clip is directed by Lebanese director Salim Al Turk and is based on the emotional outburst of a woman over her lover, who has left.
Carol has revealed that the new clip is her key to open the doorway to her fans in Gulf countries, who had previously expressed a desire to hear her sing in their accent, reported the London based daily, Dar Al Hayat. The song is Carol’s first attempt to sing in the Gulf accent, but she is expected to find great success with it especially since she has become a master at singing in different accents than the Lebanese.
The song is written by Saudi Prince Mohammad Bin Abdullah Al Faisal and composed by Prince Bandar Bin Fahid. The singer cooperated with some of the brightest composers and poets from around the Arab world. The singer added that she also filmed a clip for the song “Habait Dil Waqt” (I Just Loved Now) sung in the Egyptian accent and will be used in a new Egyptian movie.
