Faia Younan sends peace from Damascus to Aleppo

Within the events of the second “Nehna Hun” (we are here) festival, The Ministry of Culture held a closing concert entitled “Peace from Damascus to Aleppo” and performed by singer Faya Unan at the Opera House in Damascus. Faya started her concert with the song “Ahwak” (I Adore You) then the Fairuz’ song “Ehkeeli” (Tell me), representing her love for Fairouz with a performance comparable to the original. Later on, she sang a new song named “Li Fi Halab” (Me in Aleppo), followed by her old song “Nam Ya Habibi” (Sleep Darling), and different songs with participation of the audience. Nevertheless, this concert is the second one of Faya Unan at Dar al-Assad; she expressed in a statement that she was delighted by her presence and hoped her coming concert would be in Aleppo to celebrate the victorious Syria.

An exclusive interview with the Syrian singer Faya_Younan

Singer Faya Younan was in Damascus to present two concerts on the Opera Theater under the patronage of the Ministry of Culture and in collaboration with the “Nehna Hun” Society; so we had this interview with her:

• Faya, you were characterized by a national committed line since your first song “My country” which spread on the social networks. Are you willing to keep that line in the coming songs and projects?
The national line is my identity and what is happening in Syria prompted me to sing and had the largest share even in the new album, in order to reach appropriately the public through meaningful, distinctive and contemporary songs.

• standing on the stage of the Opera House has its speciality for professional singers. How important is the stage of the Opera House to Faya?
It means a lot to me because of its artistic and moral value, something very important for my career; my first concert last year was at the Opera House in Damascus.

• Do you have future plans to study and specialize more in music?
I am currently studying intensively singing and music in Lebanon through private music lessons to hone my talent, which was initially a hobby, and this step would put me on the right course. the level that I reached today came after a hard effort to work for the development of vocal skills .

• A massive turnout by the public was observed to attend your concerts. Does not this constitute burden for you?
It is a responsibility and a great pressure and tension, but it makes me sing enthusiastically to satisfy the audience who attended despite the war and the pain, for the love of people is the responsibility.
• What message does your voice have to the world?
The message is of hope and peace through the appropriate song and melody, because music is the most capable element of combining people separated by distance and circumstances.
