When: January 16,[masked]:00 PM
2430 B Byron St
Berkeley, CAMusic time again!
We will listen to and translate 2 Fairuz songs with the help of one of our seasoned Yalla Arabi Arabic speakers, who happens to be a lovely Englishman! (without a British-Arabic accent.. tho he can do one!)
1-Zahrat Al Maden (Flower of All Cities)
-will translate in Fus-Ha
2-Talloo Ahbabnah (Our Friends/Loved Ones Are Checking On Us/Are Coming)
-will translate in Lebanese/Aamiyah
a 3rd song if we can focus and be good little students for our host and leader for the evening
Casual potluck. We encourage chatting in Arabic to the whole GROUP during the lesson and endless chatting in every direction after it. We want to try to get through the songs, then have more casual fun talk-in Arabic of course-at least mostly Arabic.
