Glimpses of Egyptian culture in a song Posted by on Jan 16, 2009 in Culture


I have always loved the song ( عودوني ) by the famous star Amr Diab. The music is authentic and touching, and the clip is amazing. I have always thought that Amr Diab chooses his songs very well, but this has by far been the best for me!

The clip shows some images of traditional Nubian culture like the costumes, the henna drawings of palms and waists. The musical instruments shown and played are really something!

This song shows some of the most beautiful images of Egypt: the beautiful River Nile and the sailing boats floating calm, the clear blue skies, the ancient remains, the simple moves of the Nubian dances, even the noisy train that goes by.

Welcome to beautiful Egypt in (عودوني)!
