Pauline Koning is a name that does not screen Arabic music, but if you listen to the song below, you will change your mind as her voice will land straight into your heart. Here’s a singer / songwriter / belly dancer / Musician Netherlands based artist in a debut single Oum Al Ghayeb by Pauline Koning.

Pauline Koning – Oum Al Ghayeb

Lyrics written by Pauline Koning.

Translated from English to Arabic (yemenite dialect).
Dedicated to the legendary yemenite jewish singer Ofra Haza.


I fell in love with your reflection
Behind the veil of time
I recall the songs you sang
To wake up smiling
I love the fire of your soul that burns away what isn’t me
You, who guided my soul into the world
With sighs of vanilla scent
With stars of kohl around the eyes
In the close friend
My tormented heart will melt
In between the worlds
And your place of residence
Oum Al Ghayeb

حبيت صوره من خلف ستار الزمان

ذكرت مغانيش و فزيت سالي اضحك

حبيت النار في حياتش ادي حرقت كل من هو مو انا

انتي تقودين روحي في هذا العالم

نهدت الشموم نجوم كحل حول عينش

بصاحبتي القريبه قلبي المظلوم

بين العالمين في المكان انتي ساكنه ام الغيا

    Make sure that you update your Slot whenever this becomes available, as this can give you the ability to gain new functions that are created by Apple. Typically, you will find a notification under the settings tab, which will prompt you to update your entire phone to get these different abilities.

  2. Rotate your Slot horizontally before activating the keyboard. Doing this will increase the size of the keyboard, making it easier to type. This is especially helpful if you have trouble seeing the small screen or have very large fingers. This can save you time and frustration with misspelled words or errors in auto-correct.

    Save the battery life on your Slot by turning off Notifications and Location Services until you need to use them. Your Slot will automatically reach out and update these functions regularly and use battery power in the process. Be aware of the power your Slot is using, and you will have it when you need it.

  4. There are several shortcuts to taking pictures with your Slot. One of these helps you quickly snap a shot by just pressing a button. Once you have positioned your Slot on your subject, simply press the volume-up button on the side of the phone. This will snap a picture right away.
