el qabda music

we're listening to this local trio's latest single.

we’re proud to introduce the work of these talented young artists from the bedawi refugee camp in tripoli, north lebanon. together with mohamad, mostafa and ghida from el qabda, we wrote, recorded and produced this original track with local lebanese musician, youssef sayouf. we’ve been mentoring these young artists for a few years now and would love to give them the opportunities their talent deserves. their songs, including this one, are available to download here either for free, or if you’re able to, there is also a pay as you feel option. 

‘refugee’ lyircs:
my id is an emigrant
my nationality is homeless
my job is a traveler
my city is every city
it’s only the chance’s noise
after which the time’s stopped
i’m in the land
the dream’s been lost
and we paid the price
poverty is banishment in your homeland
while money is to be an alien
earth got one shape, yet people are numbers
imagine how many numbers in that one shape
any equation can solve this matter, can earn gold
if it was doable my father would have been rich
since i was young i watch the series of the struggler
i reject this case of being the burden
i want to be the supporter in this country
and be an ideal one
for that i always keep my dream
but if it went well with me like all the people
they’d envy me and i’d retreat

chorus:
your poverty is not a new thing
no, never blame us
i keep saying and repeating the problem is in you not in us
