Fairouz does not sing, she whispers memories and emotions in a flawless manner. She retells stories of teenage love, heartache and the love for ones country.
I used to wonder why my mother would reminisce when a Fairouz song was played, now I know. Fairouz has the ability to mentally place you in your best memories- reminding you of the ‘good’ times.
I am fascinated by the contradiction that occurs in some of her songs, when she whispers a heartache in a joyful hopeful voice. Her voice clears my head, focuses my thoughts and fuels me with energy, reminding me to take my time and perfect whatever it is that I am doing at that moment when one of her ‘whispers’ is played back.
