Elyanna on last night's Late show with Steven Colbert. Medley partly English and Arabic. Performing: Callin’ U (Tamally Maak), Mama Eh. With lyrics.

This piece struck me a bit when I first heard it. It's rare that such a person of such diverse ethnic heritage is shown on most USA network TV shows. And this girl is part Arabic. I'm certain, knowing Colbert, there was a political statement in even showing her.

This diversity is a good thing. And I fully enjoyed this performance. I hope you enjoy it as much as I had.

[quote][c=#000000]Callin’ U (Tamally Maak) Lyrics
[Verse 1]
I’m callin’ you
With all my goals
My very soul ain’t falling through
In need of you
To trust in my faith, my tears and my ways is drownin’ so
I cannot always show it but don't doubt my love

تملي معاك
ولو حتى بعيد عني في قلبي هواك
تملي معاك
تملي في بالي وفي قلبي ولا بنساك
تملي واحشني لو حتى بكون وياك
[Chorus]
I don’t need nobody
I don’t fear nobody
I don’t call nobody but you
My one and only

تملي حبيبي بشتاقلك
تملي عنيا تندهلك
ولو حواليا كل الكون
بكون يا حبيبي محتاجلك

[Verse 2]
I’m callin’ you
With all my goals
My very soul ain’t falling through
In need of you
To trust in my faith, my tears and my ways is drownin’ so
I cannot always show it but don't doubt my love

[Chorus]
تملي حبيبي بشتاقلك
تملي عنيا تندهلك
ولو حواليا كل الكون
بكون يا حبيبي محتاجلك
تملي حبيبي بشتاقلك
تملي عنيا تندهلك
ولو حواليا كل الكون
بكون يا حبيبي محتاجلك

Knowing that this artist had performed at Coachella recently, saddens me a bit. If I would have known, I might have made an effort to go there. Yet only for that performance. I very much dislike that type of crowds.
She has such a rich voice. Like a bell. She is also attractive. A throaty sound. I have never heard Arabic music before. Thank you, my friend. Give Sheba a pat.

Music, let's say the arts, could unite the world far better than political solutions.
