After a small period of quiet, Sadoun Jaber’s latest accomplishment, a new album, “Al-Rimal Mo Huzn,” has placed the singer back into the limelight.
The reason? It is the first single on his new album called, “Mo Huzn,” written by Nuwab, a poet who enjoys great admiration from fans.
The tape has achieved great success, especially due to the great advertising campaign, which was set up by its promoters. One example of the great promotion is the albums back cover, which is adorned with the picture of Nuwab alongside the lyrics to “Mo Huzn.”
The album consists of seven songs, five of which were composed by Iraqi composer Kathem Fandy. Fandy is responsible for “Mo Huzn,” “Al-Rimal,” “Altawadu Hilou,” “Kul Laila” and “Tamur Wala Tas’al.”
The two remaining songs, “Marat” and “Mu Kulha Illak,” were composed by Jawad Amoury and Mohammed Nushy, respectively.
Various other Iraqi artists have been allowed to use Nuwab’s poetry including Yas Khader, who sang the poem “Al Rayl Wa Hamd”—albawaba.com.
