Following the chart success of her single “Law Murr el Hawa” (How Bitter Love Can be), Katia Farah is recording her third album. Under the same name as the single, the album is due to come out at the start of summer and will be accompanied by a series of concerts.
While her current hit single was written and composed by Alya Dalati and Wissam al-Amir, Farah is now recording three new songs, two of which (Anta al-Habib and Ya Hala) are written by renowned Saudi poet Saoud al-Saoud. The tune’s composer is Oud maestro Araf al-Zayyani.
The young brunette, in her mid-twenties, will sing both songs in a Gulf dialect.
“I’m sure that Gulf music lovers will adore the new songs,” Katia said to thisiscyberia.com, expecting that both works will feature among this season’s top hits due to their dynamic Gulf rhythms.
“Law Murr el Hawa” will be Katia Farah’s follow-up to her previous successes in 1995 with “Nazra wa Basmi” (a Look and a Smile) and Nadi Galbi (Call my Heart), released in 1998.
Katia started her singing career as an amateur in TV contest Studio al-Fan in 1993, finishing first in the traditional song category. She also made headlines during the 1996 elections with her funny song Ahla Shab (Most Handsome Guy), which, thanks to all female voters, sees the most beautiful candidate winning the democratic race.
To promote her upcoming album, Katia is preparing a summer tour through several Arab countries, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Jordan. She will then return to Lebanon for a series of concerts – Albawaba.com
