So here’s Jon Henrik Fjällgren’s and Aninia’s song from Melodifestivalen. 🙂 Honestly I think “The Reindeer Herder’s Joik” is much better, and this one seems like made much more for mainstream, which it surely is, but I still like it and it’s cool. While Sami language is on my list of languages to learn and I love it dearly, I have no idea whether indeed “Eatneme gusnie jeenh dåaroeh” means the same as Swedish “En Värld Full Av Strider”, as I can only utter a few words in Sami, but at least I know for sure that “En Värld Full Av Strider” means a world full of battles. So here it is.
I’ve discovered this girl very recently and I think I like her, so I’m sharing one of her songs.
Gina Dirawi lives in Sundsvall in Sweden, has Palestinian roots and her family, at least her dad’s as far as I know, comes from Libanon. She is also a radio and TV presenter, actress, songwriter and comedian, but is most known as the first woman to host Melodifestivalen (the melody festival, Swedish song competition which determinates singers who to represent Sweden at the Eurovision). Her career started with a blog at anagina.blogg.se (ana Gina apparently means I am Gina in Arabic) and then she started her youtube channel. That’s a little about Gina.
I think her voice is very interesting.
