Oh storyteller tell us a story
May it be a legend!
Tell us of the people of yesterday;
 
 
 




 
 
 


Of  Loundja, the daughter of the Ogress
And the Sultan's son
 
 
 




 




 
Start with once upon a time,
 Offer us dreams
 Start with once upon a time,
 We all have a story in the depths of our heart.
 
 





 




 
  Narrate and forget we're adults
 In your mind we're young
 Tell us about heaven and hell
 
 
 




 
 
 
About the bird that never flew in his life
Make us understand the meaning of the world


 
 
 




 

 
 Oh storyteller tell it just as they told you
 Don't add anything, don't leave anything out
 We could see into your mind
 
 
 





 




Narrate to make us forget this time
Leave us at once upon a time ...

Souad Massi - Raoui  (Storyteller)

 
Raoui is a title song from the 2001 album by Algerian born, Paris based singer, Souad Massi.
A song that I've  remained in love with ever since I first stumbled upon it back in 2004,
while I was chimping  over this newly discovered thing known as "Internet Radio". 
(I live under a rock. I know.)
Even though I didn't understand the language, I was deeply moved by the music
and it quickly became one of my all time favorite songs.
 
I still shake my head in disbelief that Raoui was included in the surprisingly excellent soundtrack
for that 2o12 god-awful movie ,  The Dictator .


The song is in Algerian Arabic and the English translation is the closest in expression
 and feel to the actual song that I was able to find online.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed this little presentation.
  Over and out!
