No. 0964 Helwa ya baladi (beautiful, my country)

In 1979, sultry singer Dalida gave Egypt a fabulous tribute in what is probably the most seductive patriotic song ever performed. Note: the meaning of Helwa in Arabic is much more than just beautiful in English, it is something more like sweetness, like honey.

This song is to the Egyptians, maybe as "Land Down Under" is to Australians, or "Pata Pata" is to South Africans.

(also two great songs, so I post them as well... ;-))
