Shahd Barmada we so very much missed you and thought we would not hear from you. Thank you for changing all that by releasing a new song for a city that's gone to hell and back. more than four years and this young and dazzling hit-maker has not been out and about. This changed May 2015 as she just released a Tarab track for the city of Aleppo.
The Star Academy runner up--she was really robbed from the title, released an album in 2008 and few songs here and there, but not much since then. the song is about solidarity with the besieged city of Aleppo. It's a grown up song, not the kind you play in the club or at dance party. Just like Syria, things are very sobering and dark.
It's hard to do a party song, but songs like Shahd's are welcome. The song was released less than 48 hours ago, and it has racked in the views. I hope both parties in Syria's political equation can agree on this song, the state of Aleppo is disturbing. No need to pick sides
