Music therapy: Hussam Tahsin Baik to lift Syria's spirits through national song
Syrian conflict inspires patriotic song
Syrian actor and rising musical star Hussam Tahsin Baik, famous for writing the classical love song “Natalia”, announced that he has a patriotic song in store for compatriots who could do with something of a pick up right now.
His Syrian feel-better song in the wings tells the tune of the heartache and agony faced by Syrians caught up in the turmoil of their homeland. A visual of the struggle will accompany the song in a video shot across a mix of local neighbourhoods around the country.
Hussam’s latest television drama “Al Amimi” is airing on Arab satellite channel MBC. A drama of the days of yore under the Ottoman Empire, the series captures traditional Syrian life, an aspect dear to the actor's heart.
Baik himself, struck by a mood of nostalgia for old Syrian life before revolution, has spoken of his own backgroud, growing up a similar miliieu to that of a traditional Syrian neighborhood.
