Lord of Ramadan

A music video by CoTu. Boy bandish, but quite an interesting development in the Muslim Music Scene. Catchy chorus!

Sadly we here in the UAE can't see any youtube content due to it beeing blocked by the local ISP. So all of you out who can see the video, better give a detailed account.

Well I am guessing the group is german. They sing beautifully a chorus in arabic about ramadan, then in english...then turkish rapping, and arabic and german rapping. Quite interesting. The video shows muslim homes during ramadan.

it is on Google Video? they haven't blocked that .. not yet atleast..

Destitute Rebel said...

SS thanks for the description. :-)

Moryarti I tried to find it on google doesnt seem to be there.

Kaya- TubeLight!! lightbulb wont do for you. lol.

Boo! said...

Boybandish? It is as boyband as boybands get! (=

I was trying to figure out what languages were there in the song. I have to admit I didn't pick up Turkish.

You are right... very catchy chorus. But I am not a huge fan of putting in the ayat from the Quran in the song. Nevertheless, I have a feeling I will be humming the chorus through the day!

Shaykhspeara Sha'ira said...

Boo, I know turkish when I hear it. lol

Well why not put in the ayah in the song? It is not quran recitation as such, it is quoting a verse that is universal about the qualities of God.

It is like having a song called, "Oh God is merciful". It is also a verse from the Quran, ya know? :)

and ok fine it is very boybandy lol and I am already humming the chorus.

Moryarti, I will engage my german friends in trying to find the song some way so that you can hear it. Bahaawil!

رمضان راوح الرحمن رمضان
