ecru's Soundtrack, Sanaa Al Kharaz's جابر أبونا من عمر February 19 2020, 0 Comments
Growing up in Kuwait in the 1980s and 1990s everyone used to watch the operettas that were produced for the National Day. This specific song, performed in 1981, whenever I listen to it sparks so much joy in me. It was sung and performed for the late Amir, Sheikh Jaber Sabah Al Ahmed. Every February I have to play it on repeat.
