Walid Shami, Elevating Iraqi Lyrics and Tunes

Iraqi songs are about small towns and people passionate enough to let an entire town know that they have fallen for the girl next door. I find Iraqi songs are about the landscape and the people living there. Once you paint that picture you can talk about you and your sweetheart.

Few Iraqi singers and composers know that, all the good ones do realize that and so does Walid. An Iraqi composer turned singer who now is based in Dubai where he gives his best tunes to the A listers. When he is not doing that, he write and cover songs that add to the Iraqi folklore. Iraqis tend to be big critics of music, so you have to be for real or else.
