Bluesy New Version of Nazem El Ghazali's 'Aqulu wa Qa Na7at اقول وقد ناحت' Recorded by Dany Baladi

In the series of minimal recordings , here is an amazing new version of Ya Jarata (Nazem el Ghazali) that has been recorded by Dany Baladi with the musical guidance of the one and only Zeid Hamdan. A guitar, a Bass, a RS 7000 Drum machine and a brilliant singer !


Here is the 'old' version by Nazem El Ghazali followed by the lyrics in Arabic:



اقول وقد ناحت / ابو فراس الحمداني

بصوت ناظم الغزالي 


أقولُ وقد ناحت بقربي حمامةٌ 

أيا جارتا لو تشعرينَ بحالي 


معاذَ الهوى ما ذقتِ طارقة النوى 

ولا خطرتْ منك الهمومُ ببالي 


أيا جارتا ما انصفَ الدهرُ بيننا 

تعالي أقاسِمْكِ الهمومَ تعالي 


أيضحكُ مأسورٌ وتبكي طليقةٌ 

ويسكتُ محزونٌ ويندبُ سالي 


لقد كنتُ أولى منكِ بالدمعِ مقلةً 

ولكنَّ دمعي في الحوادثِ غالي 


** * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 


يابا ويلي ويلي يابا معلم على الصدعات قلبي 


قللي يا حلو منين الله جابك 

حَزّن جَرِجْ قلبي من عذابك 


جرح القلب من فرقاك خزّن 

ما حد مثلي بمحبوبه تمحّن 


هل هذا نصيبي وانجبر بيه 

لا آني أتوب ولا الله يهديه 


قللي يا حلو ش جابك عليّا 

كملت الألم والهمّ أذيّة 


وآني اللي جرحت ايدي بايديّا 


ريتك وانتا مغترّ بجمالك
