New Music from Tania Saleh & Dina El Wedidi






On the heels of their appearance on last year's Songs From A Stolen Spring, Valley Entertainment is excited to announce the release of new solo albums from Tania Saleh and Dina El Wedidi.

Beirut's Tania Saleh gives us an album about love. On A Few Images (Algumas Imagens), this Lebanese artist looks towards love of the lost and failed variety. This is love seen from a woman's point of view in a region of the world where men rule, where a woman's needs are silenced or suppressed.

Dina El Wedidi is a young singer-songwriter from Cairo who combines fiery contemporary sounds with her roots in Egyptian vocal music. After gaining notoriety in 2011 during the Egyptian Revolution, Dina was selected to join The Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative by famed Brazilian musician Gilberto Gil. Her solo debut, Turning Back, features a collaboration with Gil on the song "The Night (El Liel)". She is currently on tour in the United States with The Nile Project - a collective of East African artists who use their music to inspire, educate, and engage audiences about the region.

Both albums are now available on CD and digital download.See http://www.valley-entertainment.com/
