Artwork by Edward Decker: Tribute to Fairuz and Dalida

This amazing artwork was made by Edward Decker as part of a project for his printing class in college.

It depicts two of the Arab world's most beloved Divas:  Fairuz and Dalida.  The sign with the ribbon in between indicates the 'Ashrafieh' neighborhood in Beirut, Lebanon.

I predict a rosy future for this amazing young artist and congratulate him on his creativity and dedication.

Arabic Version of Dalida's 'Bambino' by Lili Boniche

Lili Boniche (Élie Boniche - b. 1921 - d. March 6, 2008) was born to a Sephardic Jewish family in the Kasbah area of Algiers and was a singer of Andalusian-Arab music. He died in Paris. In addition to writing music for commercial release, he also was a film composer.

His version of the song Bambino--memorably recorded by the late Dalida in French and Italian back in the 1950's--is a gem of a song that can be found on Boniche's 2001 album Tresors de la Chanson Judee-Arabe. Its Arabic lyrics are faithful to the original and retain the playful nature of the song.



Here is Dalida's 1957 version in French:



Here is Dalida's later version in French (live):



Here is another version of Dalida singing 'Bambino' with a nice montage/original footage from various shows:



Finally, here is a re-worded version of 'Bambino' performed by Dalida and Enrico Masias on French TV. Note the way the two performers greet each other in Egyptian Arabic:
