With the expert help of director Reda Lahmouid and editor Medhi Gribi, Rime Salmi brings us a freshly recorded version of this classic Warda song. The video is the showstopper, as the music and visual combine to bring us an entertaining journey. Bumped up in a big way by a professional dance trio, Rime Salmi brings home her own feelings on this iconic track. This Moroccan-Canadian artist is drawing on talent from the Canadian LGBTQ+ community with her dancers, who bring a glitzy and vibrant delivery and style. Her message is clear, it says Arab LGBTQ+ people are real and they have their own sense of identity.
On a synthesiser melody, classical tones spill like shining waters over a distant landscape. Ethnic sounds and catchy drumming frame a unique sounding composition. A hip-hop element mixes perfectly with Moroccan style instrumentation and scale. Rime Salmi begins her song and her voice shines from a smiling mouth. She's clearly enjoying his performance as the sleek, sensual energy of the music drifts in familiar lines and tune.
