I have blogged about Jordanian singer Hana Malhas and her amazing music and talent previously at http://author32.blogspot.com/2012/07/hana-malhas-jordanian-singer-who.html
Maher Hanhan was on percussions, Odai Shawagfeh on e. guitar and vocals, Lana Abu Khader on vocals.
Cohesive and complex, each performed track maintained undertones of melancholy, while simultaneously achieving the catchiness of a pop tune.
“Her voice has a great deal of texture and soul…[Malhas’s] songs are both deeply felt and full of fresh images...[she] has an unusual knack for using elemental nature images with emotional resonances.” -Ann Arbor Oberserver
One writer, Philip Logos, describes the album: “Hana’s voice is at times haunting, and hard-hitting at others. The songs are relatable, not because of universal themes or catchy tunes – for frequently both music and lyrics take an unexpected (and therefore interesting) turn – but rather because of the unabashedly exposed nature of the writing, which can only be the product of Hana’s sincere approach to connecting with her audience.”
