Fnaire - Yedd El Henna

[quote=SimplyMoroccan]@ Sarahzina:
You can open a thread for each song, where you can post both the video and the lyrics. That will be nice. :slight_smile:

@Myriam:
Those lyrics are partially wrong, actually!
Look at these, that I find more accurate. The transcription is not from me.

Let’s translate them together :D.[/quote]
@SpeakMoroccan

well actually :ok: I found them on a random lyrics website and yeah they didn’t totally fit the song . no problem though, at least now we know the accurate version! ma3tkich bladi - dont touch my country, is also good

i discovered a nice thing about morocco with the song Lalla aicha because a nice guy told me what is Aicha Qandisha(lalla aicha) that’s just a very fascinating aspect of Moroccan culture …i think in other maghreb countries don’t know about this Jiniya…

:ty: for the lyrics :ty:
that makes it easier to understand :smiley:

So please someone tell us about Aicha Qandishla :slight_smile: please

aicha qandisha is a jinya a spirit that invades men and opens the way for other demons…it seems to be like this as i understand…maybe someone other here could tell more…
:wink:

Urban legend! Well said. She is not known in villages as much as she is known in cities. At least not in Berber villages.
Why? You grew up in Morocco? Or there was a middle eastern-ized version of the fairy?

Allah yr7mo (The DJ that is).

Always liked Fnaire.

I have only heard of ‘eisha qandisha’ as a way of scolding little girls when they, for instance, don’t brush their hair…

Also, isn’t there some sort of a jam/jelly with this trade name?

That’s also another way we refer to her. When a girl has messy hair, we say that she looks like 3isha Qndisha.

No Moroccan sane kid would eat a 3isha Qndisha jam :D. It’s called Aicha.
