Halwa Ya Baladi Homage to Egypt Cover By Line Sleibi

This Egyptian song has become my ear worm this week!

This song was sung in the 1970’s by an Egyptian singer. The cover is sung by Lina who is absolutely marvellous at it. The musicians have also done an amazing job. The setting on the terrace create the most mesmerising atmosphere and you feel transported to Palestine, where Lina Sleibi comes from.

Helwa Ya Baladi is an homage to Egypt by Dalida (the singer) who was born in Egypt. Below is the Translation of the song. You can check the Arabic Wordings here

A beautiful word and many more
My country is beautiful
A beautiful song and many more
My country is beautiful
My hope was always
To come back to my country
And stay with you forever
 
Memories from the past
My country I remember
My heart is full of stories
 
My country, I remember
My first love was in my country
It’s impossible for my to forget
Wheres the old days
Before leaving
 
We used to say that seperation was impossible
 
And every tear on the cheeks used to drop
Filled with lots of hope that we will stay
In the sea of love
 
A beautiful word and many more
My country is beautiful
A beautiful song and many more
My country is beautiful
Wheres the love of my heart
He was away from me
And every time we sing
I think of him
 
Tell me love, where are you going and leaving me
It’s the most beautiful song were both going to sing
My country is a beautiful word to be singing between the lines
 
A beautiful word and many more
My country is beautiful
A beautiful song and many more
My country is beautiful
My hope was always
To come back to my country
And stay with you forever

I earlier thought that it must be a love song. Why would I like an Arabic song which I really don’t understand. I guess this proves the language of music is universal.

Hope you enjoy it!
