Kathem al Saher: I am constantly in Love!
Iraqi singer Kathem al Saher continues in his new album entitled Qissat Habibain (two lovers story) his keenness on respecting his audience. In this album he offers 12 songs that cover all forms of sung words including poem, Mawwal and pop song.
“I recorded 24 songs written by prominent poets and I had to select 12 only which was a very difficult task. Ultimately my choice was right and I am very happy with this album for its quick success,” Saher told the Arabic daily al Hayat.
He added, “a number of poems and many difficult songs were available to me but my audience asked me to go back to the simple pop songs. This is the right of my audience because they have missed Mawwal and pop songs. But I was hoping to record the long poems which were delayed upon the request of my audience who needed simple words.”
Saher also performed some songs with dancing rhythm. “This is due to the fact that I want to make my audience happy. They asked me for that and I responded to those who want to enjoy listening to sweet music and words,” said Saher.
Frequently, the singer finds “composing pop songs more difficult than poems. This is due to the fact that a poem and beautiful words bring pleasure and relaxation. Here comes creativity but the difficulty in a pop song lies in the need for it to be simple in order to reach people and be close to their souls.”
Saher reiterates that he has always been calling for love and not for breaking away. He said, “I am a constant lover who search for humanitarian topics. The poem “Two Lovers” is completely new in everything and its content is different. It is a sweet song written by Karim al Iraqi and depicts the care of a woman for her lover even if they differ or depart from each other.” -- Albawaba.com
