Macadi Nahhas : Voice of Amman

When you want to breath the whiff of history of Amman you have to listen first to Macadi....!
When you want to touch the history of Amman you have to listen first to Macadi...!
When you want to feel and to taste the modernity and the originality of Amman the capital of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan you must listen first to the angelic voice of the Jordanian young singer Macadi Nahhas...!

In this blog I am not talking about Petra or Jarash. I'm talking about a gift from Amman to the Arabs, a gift from Amman to the world called Macadi Nahhas. Her songs seem like old hymns to the extent make you think that no limits of the sound when touching the clouds or the stars in the sky.....

Macadi used to revive heritage in very remarkable and impressive way....besides all that her own songs also could be described as an extension to that great Folks of the middle east region...

Sometimes, I think that she did not take her right, no I am absolutely trust that she did not take her right as one of the most important Arab singers.

I am not a music critic so I will take my needs of joy and listen to the voice of angelic of Amman Macadi Nahhas........

Fadwa Rouhana : The Camera When Becomes a Friend...!

When I asked Fadwa Rouhana to choose some of here photographic works , I thought it will be easy mission, and I thought that she will send some of those photos to be published in my own new blog " Earth of Ideas" easily .  And after days of waiting I tried to choose by myself some of the her works that could be "sufficient". I thought that just thinking........this is just thinking my friend Fadwa.

Our Mahmoud Darwish said " She was called Palestine, Her name later became Palestine".... To recognize Fadwa Rouhana arts you should keep in mind this phrase.... Rouhana was born in Esefya village on the top of the great mountain Al Karmel in Palestine, and she lived for 13yrs in Cairo after she completed her studying of business administration  from university of Wales in Britain before she came back to live with her memories to Palestine.And on the time being she is studying the photograph Technic  in Florence, Italy.

Personally, I knew Fadwa through some pictures of old people in the old city of Jerusalem in her own facebook page. she named the album Wahdon Wa Ana (only them and me).

Fadwa said: The camera became my friend and it becomes more sensitive, spiritual and stronger  when I use it in my homeland, I am trying  to keep all the seconds..." 

I said it is very difficult to choose from her albums. but I will do my best to put some of those pictures were taken in Palestine and other places of the world. Hope these pictures will be "sufficient " to introduce one of our Palestinian photographer called Fadwa Rouhana.
