Today, I thought I'd share a couple of fun world music videos.
The first, by the Iranian singer Googoosh, I blatantly stole from Tut-Tut's blog just because I really love it.
But hearing it reminded me of a song I liked when I lived in Morocco, by the singer Majida al-Roumi. Called "Al Kalemat," or "Words," I first heard it when I was working in a remote health clinic and I bought the cassette as soon as I got to a major market nearby. Be warned: It's a long song, and you can ignore the cheesy visuals in the video. Just listen to the music.
