The Syrian @Raldaoffical Sings For Bad Choices
Ralda is a young Syrian pop star whose eyes are set on Egypt where she tries to keep a busy schedule. She just released a new single that show a bit of her gentle spirit. Ralda does have an interesting voice, she does sound like half a dozen male pop artists. It’s not her fault some Arab singer guys sound like women sometimes.
It’s a grownup song about managing to find hope despite one’s world falling apart around them. The song is about bad choices that we make or just bad calculations. I dig the music of Moustaf Mahfouz that sounds like his signature work. Her exotic Western looks are attributed to her native land of Lattakia where she sang her first song.
Ralda does not sound like she is Syrian–not in her songs anymore but her pop persona shows up every time she has a single. While she has a lot of work to do to catch up with all the big names in Arabic pop, Ralda has the raw talent to stand out, we just need a bit of peace to allow folks to pay attention.
