Little Arab Girl
From Change EP
When arriving in the UK via Germany from distant Syria at the age of ten, Mai hadn't yet discovered RnB music. Upon hearing it, she knew that music was for her. Falling in love with the style and energy of the rhythm and blues sound, it didn't take long before Mai. K began making her own songs. Now a little older and as a working mother, a music career is beginning to bloom. Since recording her album, then having a baby, Mai took it easy while she had more important things to do. That's when she met her manager, Rob Saunders. The living legend behind Deuce Music knew exactly what Mai needed. Confidence, a platform, and friends in the business. That's when the album was split into three awesome EPs. This gives Mai the opportunity she needs to promote her sound in her own way and remain fresh as the months go by. It's what people want. She's already been involved in many projects, including a highly successful video made to remember the Grenfell Disaster.
Little Arab Girl is the first single from the first EP. Painting a picture for us with the title, it already has me intrigued. Haunting piano begins the song, and Mai begins to sing. She projects emotive gestures of voice into the air, and a drum adds a groove. The lyrics bring memories and stories into play, providing a theatre for us, we learn about the emotional journey Mai expresses. The troubles and family disruption that come with being a refugee make a deep and heartfelt song. Smooth delivery and expert vocal work give Little Arab Girl a fantastic sound.
