Mariam Fares goes European
Lebanese singer Mariam Fares has joined the recent trend of Arab singers who have chosen to film their music videos in European countries.
Mariam chose Paris as the perfect location to film the clip for her song “Ha’lik Rahtak” (I Will Disturb your Peace) from her latest album “Nadini” (Call Me).
Other Lebanese singers who have chosen Paris to film their videos include Majida Al Roumi, Rami Ayash, Madelline Matar, and Ragheb Alama.
According to the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat, director Wisam Samira chose the crowded streets of Paris for the setting to give Mariam a romantic and natural appearance. The video features the French Gymnase Marie Bella, one of the oldest dance theaters in Paris dating back over 250 years.
“I Will Disturb your Peace” was written by Mariam’s sister, Rula Fares, and was composed by Mohammad Raheem.
Mariam was recently in Dubai to take part in the launching ceremony of the new Indian television station “Be Arabia.” The station is intended for Arab viewers and will feature a variety of Indian programs.
