Amina Alaoui Lyrics
01:49:16 PM Monday Nov 5, 2007

I recently posted a little note on Amina Alaoui and just got two of her cd's that I ordered. One is Amina Alaoui solo's and the other is Amina Alaoui singing with the Ahmed Piro orchestra. Needless to say I love them both, and I know my two fav's by heart now! teehee :) but.. there's a little problem...

The cd I ordered of Amina Alaoui's solos was a lucky internet find - I guess the vendor was Japanese and I didn't pay attention to that when ordering. So now I have the cd, but the little booklet that's supposed to have the lyrics is -- you guessed it -- in JAPANESE! how funny .. I never would've imagined that there's a fan base for her music in Japan. but that's great! I can imagine some arabic student riding the subway in Tokyo on their way to class and humming along to Li Habiboun :o))

El mouhim, right now I'm on a mission to get a copy of her lyrics in the original Arabic. Does anyone have a clue where I can get that?? I know where I can probably find one of them "Ode d'ibn Arabi" at a library out here, but I don't know the original sources for the others, or which andaloussi poets may have written some of them.

Any clues??

PS: anyone know what music school(s) she attended? I'm surprised there's no official Amina Alaoui website.. or does that exist and I just couldn't find it?

It's good to know her Dad too! Interesting! It's something they have in the family. I don't know about her mother, and brothers and sisters if any.

In this song, her Dad sings about a STAR that shows him the way and provides him with strength in this world. Star in spanish is ESTREILLA. Don't you thing he is singing about his daughter Estreilla. I think so. He may love her so much, and to tell you the truth, he's not wrong...

Thank you.

I don't know about her bro. What's his name? I may try to listen to some of his songs and see if I like him. But her, God she is a great singer. Her performance, particularly in this song "Zambra", is just peeerfect.

Estreilla Morente and Amina Alaoui are, since we started commenting on them, so tied in my mind for some reason. I think they have this "Andaloussi" thing in common. They both are definitely among the finest artists I've ever got to know.

Last Saturday, I was listening to a radio program in my car. It was an interview with an old lady who has dedicated her life to the city of Essaouira and the promotion of its artists (didn't capture her name). When they asked her which song she wished to listen to, she asked for "Al7orm ya Rasul Allah" by Amina Alaoui. I listened to the song till the end before continuing the course of my day activities. It was worth stopping for a while...

Thanks Hudhud for sharing this beautiful song of Estreilla Morente (in a different note). A loose translation of parts of it would be something like the following:

"Move away from the window !
Because I'm going to sigh (cry).
My sighs are made of fire and they may burn you.
What do you want from me ?
If even the water I drink, I wish you give it to me?
And when death comes to me,
don't put it in front of me,
because I care for it so much,
that it breaks my heart"

Great ! Thanks Adnan for the new feature "linking words you have put in the Inboxes. I'm really grateful. Hudhud had tried to explain to me to do that, but finally recommended that Adnan gives the guidance. I just tried successfuly this feature in my previous comment (test) and I'm making sure I got it in this one. Thanks Hudhud and Thanks Adnan. Here is a gratification that everybody can enjoy.

Estreilla Morente

I see you're perseverent on the track. I promised nothing so far but I have a personal reason (beauty) to continue looking for those lyrics you're looling for. Whenever I find something I'll let you know. This place without you is nothing...
