About the Song

Those of us from regions that speak Greek, Arabic, and Turkish have exchanged countless songs with each other through licensing the music and creating lyrics in our own languages. These include both current pop music and classics. The song translated on this page is an example of one – it originally appeared in Egypt as "Wala Wahed".

"Wala Wahed", was released in 1998 in Arabic by Hakim on the album Hayel. It was written and composed by Hakim. The music arrangement for the Egyptian version was by a Libyan musician named Hamid El Shaeri.

ABOUT THE PHOTO: The photo shows Hakim, the original artist to release this song in Egypt.

The Greek version of this song was released under the name "Ston Evdomo Ourano" by Lefteris Pantazis, and its music video was filmed in Egypt!

  1. Literally, "no doubt fits".
  2. Literally, "heartbeat", but in this context refers to the pulse.
  3. "My kid" is the literal translation, but it doesn't mean my son or daughter. We use this all the time as slang to refer to men and women.
  4. Literally, "my breath gets cut/stops".

About the Translator

This page was contributed by Panayiota Bakis Mohieddin, who is happy to share her culture and music she grew up with! Here's how Panayiota describes her background:

I always love engaging with intelligent like-minded people, especially artists. I love sharing anything and everything about my Hellenic culture and upbringing, especially music and dance. A conversation with me will bring you back to America's favorite Greek-American movie by Nia Vardalos called My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

I love investigating Greek culture, history, music, and dance. Speaking of investigating, I think I missed my calling, I probably should have been an investigator. Instead, I use those skills to dig and dig and dig tirelessly, often times falling asleep on my laptop... just to find the truth. But, most importantly, accurate truth. For me personally, and other respectable folklorists, my culture and accuracy are very important. Each generation of ethnic born artists has a duty to do the best it can to pass down our traditions as was taught to us. We have been given this artistic gift to be the gatekeepers of our heritage and culture.
