Hello out there, music lovers. How are you doing today? I am tired my dear readers. On Monday I had my third round of chemotherapy and the first week afterwards is always a bit of a struggle. Not too much but enough for me to take a break from blogging.
But guess what? WordPress is great and let’s us schedule posts and so I did 🙂
What’s up at Song Lyric Sunday today?
Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday challenged us to find a song for the topic “Best/Better/Good/Great”. And today I bring you to Marocco/ Essaouira at the Hotel Les Terrasses D’Essaouira where Andalucious played at the Essaouira Atlantic Andalusia Festival. I have discovered Andalucious via my virtual travels on “Come Away With Me” and I just love their music.
Andalucious are a Jewish ensemble that tries to bring back music that used to be performed by the Jewish community in North Africa. This music has mainly Marroccan and Algerian roots.
At the Essaouira Atlantic Andalusia Festival they recorded a song that encourages Jewish and Muslim people to see their similarities and not their reasons for war. I think that is a very good topic! This is what it says on YouTube about he following video:

The Universe connected us as we were looking for artists and they were looking for someone who can record them due their visit in Morocco to play concerts at the 15th Festival des Andalousies Atlantiques d’Essaouira 🙂 The setup was tight as we had only 40 min. for mic setup, soundcheck, put the cameras and record – what you have here is the first take and it was magic. We love to say thank you for this great experience and wish you all the best !!! The lyrics are wonderful !!! Each one is different but we are all equal and should spend our time to live in peace together 🙂 The Track was Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Adrian “Ady” Parzentny from Hit The Road Music Studio : A mobile record studio, traveling and recording artists all around the world !
Another reason why I chose this song is obvious. For the Muslim community Alah is great!
