Universal Language
You don't have to understand the words to feel the joy and happiness of the holiday season that comes through this music and these voices. I look forward to Wafic's future offerings.

A Rare Treat
The title of this review really says it: This Christmas Album is a rare treat. Where else can you hear classic Christmas songs in Arabic? (As far as I can tell--nowhere!) This album and it's companion 'Jayee Papa Noel' are at once enjoyable holiday music as well as reminders that Christmas is not a holiday only for American Christians, but for Christians worldwide.

"East Meets West" - Classic Christmas Songs Sung in Arabic
The best way to describe this CD is "East meets West". Wafic has managed to single handedly carve a very unique niche in the Christmas music market. Blending a combination of western and middle eastern music with Arabic lyrics is indeed a rarity especially when it comes to Christmas music. The real secret to the success of this extraordinary collection may well be the lyrics. Those of us who don't speak Arabic may not realize that these songs are not merely translated but are in most cases completely rewritten to tell a whole new story. Anyone who has ever attempted to translate a song will appreciate the necessity to change lyrics in order for the meter and rhythm of the new language to match the original melody. Wafic has done that and more by putting a new spin and meaning onto these classic Christmas songs. This recording appeals to all ages as it contains many songs that include child vocals as well as songs with adult background vocals. The music is often traditional Christmas with lots of bells and chimes but also ventures into upbeat pop, middle eastern drum rhythms, and even a little jazz. And if that wasn't enough he even includes a couple of original pieces to round out this already amazing collection. Highly recommended for all those who speak Arabic and anyone looking for a very unique offering of familiar Christmas songs sung in Arabic. Personal favorites include "Jayee L’eed", "Talj El Milad", "Yalla ala Naum", and "Bowset Papa Noel".
