Cathy: Iza ma fi

Many first thought this to be Ziad Rahbani’s new track, understandably. Both on the musical and lyrical aspect, the Rahbani influence is undeniable. This is actually the work of Elie Barrak and Cathy who sign a true work of art with this track.

Cathy: iza ma fi

The music is fresh, jazzy, with a catchy tune, but more importantly, the lyrics depict in a very down to earth and witty way, the female Lebanese mentality of the 21st century.

(updated: 19:28) We often forget that, whether it’s to get laid or married, most men conforming to Lebanese mainstream moral values strive to provide the whole superficial package, both to attract and maintain the lifestyle of their women, from the first date all the way through to the first few years of marriage (after that, the females usually live off alimony)

The Rahbani legend is old news. Hope Barrak will keep it up… fill Ziad’s shoes.

I found the video later but i advise to listen to the song first. the video is below expectations

    HAHAHA this is HUGE and SOOOOO representative of the lebanese women’s mentality (but let’s not generalize…we need to admit there are a few exceptions out there)

  2. I don’t know If I said it already but …Hey good stuff…keep up the good work! 🙂 I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,)

    A definite great read..Jim Bean

  3. this is soo lebanese !!

  4. I think it’s not fair that we have this mentality about Lebanese woman. I am nothing like that! and I know many who are not and we are all Lebanese …

  5. @Mariam You are absolutely right. Unfortunately the fact is that there is a growing number of women (in Lebanon or elswhere) who are obsessed with materialistic aspects and all signs of “wealth”.

  6. well i have to say i don’t find anywhere in this song any1 specifying lebanese women or other nationalities but since you took it that way then i hope u are not like that :p
