Fairuz – Habbeytak Bessayf (Lebanon, 1973, Parlophone – Voix De L’Orient Series) / فيروز – حبيتك بالصيف

Following to this former article, I wanted to share with you for today “Habbeytak Bessayf” (“حبيتك بالصيف“, what could be translated by “I loved you since the summer” in Lebanese Arabic langage), a mesmerizing & bewitching Oriental Arabic Jazz track with Latin vibes & beautiful piano parts, one of the most iconic & famous song from the Lebanese Diva Nuhad Ḥaddad (betterly known as “Fairuz“) taken from the play “Ya’iche… Ya’iche…” (“He lives… He lives”).

This track was recorded in 1973 and composed by the mythical Assi & Mansour Rahbani Brothers, and released on the mythical “EMI – Parlophone” record label (“Voix De L’Orient” series).

Cherry on the cake : this gorgeous picture of the Diva, taken live by the Lebanese photographer Varoujan Setian, who was the appointed photographer of the Rahbani Brothers’ theatrical company – Enjoy !

For today, I wanted to share with you “نحن ساهرون” (“Nahnou Sahiroun” or “We Are Awake” in Arabic langage), a splendid Middle-Eastern Spiritual Jazz Soul Funk track with gorgeous chorus & beautiful piano parts, taken from an album of Christian songs recorded in 1977 by the legendary Lebanese composers & musicians Ziad Rahbani & Bechara Khoury (زياد الرحباني و بشارة الخوري) at the Mar Elias church of Antelias (“أنطلياس” in Arabic, a city in the Matn District of the Mount Lebanon Governorate, located around 5 km to the north of the capital Beirut).

The chorus on this record is composed with the marvelous voices of the Broummana Oecumenical Choir (جوقة برمانا المسكونية) and the Youth Chorus Of Antelias (جوقة شباب انطلياس), and conducted by Mesrob Berejikan (مسروب بيره جيكيان).
