Jahida Wahba: “I did not ask of God”


At the beginning of Ramadan, the Lebanese singer Jahida Wahba (photo) released a new song that will be part of an album that will be released soon. “What I asked of God,” which was born on the digital platforms of music, is the signature of Wahba’s musical composition, performance and production, while the words are Ahlam Mosteghanemi and the musical arrangement of Mike Massy. The song, with emotional implications drawn from the spiritual dimensions, can be said to be a liturgical chant extending for about nine minutes, in which Wahba was keen to “embroider melodic sentences and shrines with good and dazzling beauty and innovation,” according to a statement issued by the artist. She had previously performed it on stage, but she liked to present it in a harmonious orchestral costume.It is worth noting that the work is the first Ghaith from a future album shared between Wahba and Ahlam Mosteghanemi, completed during the quarantine period and recorded by the artist in the studio of Elie Kallab, and it is all composed by her and the words of Mostaghanemi and distributed by Mike Massy.
As for her other new work, Wehbe is preparing for a second album that she recorded in Paris in 2019 with the two musicians Sari and Ayad Khalifa, entitled “Salt and Shadows”. It is a “unique experience in mixing poetry and music based on the poems of great poets all over the world.” It is also composed and distributed by the Khalifah brothers, but it includes a lot of improvisational spaces. The Lebanese singer is also preparing a children’s album that will reveal his first songs after the fasting month, and during the Marian month (May) she will release a hymn composed by journalist Bassam Barak and distributed by Elie Kallab and filmed by director Ibrahim Dagher.
