    Cairo Festival City Mall’s ’3am Santa’ show, 16&17 December

     

    There are loads of events coming up this weekend, too!  Like this one at CJC, some ‘winter magic‘ at Nineteen Twenty Five, a holiday-themed sing-along at El Sawy Culture Wheel, and more ‘Sant-ics’ at CJC

    BUT……

    There’s something amiss about our Christmas; we’re missing out on Arabic holiday-themed tunes! We’re all familiar with classic Christmas music by Dean Martin and Mariah Carey’s infamous ‘All I Want for Christmas is You‘, but what about Julia Boutros’ ‘El-Leila Jay Yasoo3‘ ? 

    We assumed as much. There is actually more holiday-themed Arabic music out there than you’d think; here’s some to get you in the spirit: 

    Leilat Eid‘ – Fairouz

     

     ’Dawy bel-Layali Sa3eeda’ – Nadim Barbaari 

     

    ‘Baba Noël’ – Nelly & Moustafa Amar

     

    Farah w Zeena‘ – Pascale Sakr

     

    Soat El-Eid‘ – Fairouz

     

    De2 Bawabon‘ – Majda El-Roumy

     

    Hallelujah Weled El-Messie7‘ – Pascale Sakr

     

    Shu Fee Atfal‘ – Julia Boutros

     

    Talj Talj‘ – Fairouz

     

    Miladak Ya Rabbi‘ – Joumana Medawar

     

    ‘Kol sana w-ento tayyibeen’.
