 Stranded: Ya Ghorba يا غربة

Lyrics & song production: Saba Hamzah

The Arabic word “Ghorba” reflects a unique feeling of rather overwhelming state of homesickness. Yemenis (and Arabs in general) abroad or in exile use the term in poetic, nostalgic ways remembering what it used to be at home before becoming strangers. Ghorba has no verbatim translation in most other languages and cultures of the term or the feelings it carries with it. 00:00 Mawal الموال 01:26 Song الأغنية
