A Tribute to Classic Arabic Songs – A Red Sea Translation Project
The Red Sea Translation Team continues its quest to build bridges between cultures, this time by providing Arabic-English Translations for timeless Arabic Classics. We started by translating lyrics for Umm Kulthum and Kathem Al Saher and decided to also show case the work of other old-school greats such as the late Abu Bakr Salem.
The latest song to be translated by the team is a rather obscure but magnificent song by Yemeni artist Ali bin Ali Al-Ansi (1933-1981). Red Sea’s Adel Alhaimi translated the lyrics and the video was produced by the Red Sea media team.
