WATCH: @CAROLE_SAMAHA - Wahshani Bladi VC / كارول سماحه - وحشاني بلادي #GetExcited

Rare are the songs that make one fall in love with a distant land all over again. Carole Samahe and her team released a song in March 2013 where the music from that distant past that we cherish, the lyrics are also timeless. But her performance is timely. They just do not make many well-made songs that call for unity and inspires hope. Millions of Arabs have left their countries, but they have never moved their hearts. This song from Carole talks to both the mind and the heart.

The song is about immigration and people who leave behind the good things they love in search of better things that will earn them a paycheck or buy them some freedom. I love how inclusive this music video is, it weaves together lots of Arab looking immigration headed away form the motherland in the heat of the sun through the desert.

Carole leads the pack and walks the walk with them looking very appealing and leads the march for freedom. "together we make the freedom", the moment this becomes a dance battle, I am at loss, but this is a really good songs that blends so many musical instruments. The sound arrangement takes no back seat and keeps you on your feet...the music video is like a mini movie, where there are twists with high and low emotional moments.

The music videos tells the store of the Arab Spring perhaps, or that made up borders between various Arabic-speaking people who were told they are different. The song is about unity and gathering under one banner. The good happy/sweet days will make a comeback. This is a bold song from an artist who also doubles as a thinker. She had the courage to wear that traditional veil and short skirt as a warrior.  I like what she stands for as I am sure many ladies appreciate the positive role mode Carole has been for so many young women.
