Just hit the play button, sit back and scroll down (slowly) to enjoy a fine selectionof wonderful stories from the Street.
Oh storyteller tell us a storyMay it be a legend!Tell us of the people of yesterday;
Of Loundja, the daughter of the OgressAnd the Sultan's son
Start with once upon a time,Offer us dreamsStart with once upon a time,We all have a story in the depths of our heart.
Narrate and forget we're adultsIn your mind we're youngTell us about heaven and hell
About the bird that never flew in his lifeMake us understand the meaning of the world
Oh storyteller tell it just as they told youDon't add anything, don't leave anything outWe 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 musicand 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 expressionand feel to the actual song that I was able to find online.I hope you enjoyed this little presentation.Over and out!
