Khadra Daahir _ Jacayl Waa Gar (K7 1980s)
I've heard that Khadra Daahir is seriously ill but I couldn't get it confirmed. If that's the case, I wish her a speedy recovery and, in all cases, all the very best.
This is, by far, not KD's best tape but the others I have are so distorted that they sound quite Martian, musically and linguistically. Moreover, the lyrics on this one are very significant as they're all about love, mutual respect, tolerance...
This post is dedicated to all consenting adults whose love life is judged, misprised and even threatened by pontificating herds whose common sense is blinded by (outdated) traditions, religions, borders, materialism etc. Love is ALWAYS right!
