2. Arabic Tango with Soumaya Baalbaki

The CD "Arabtango" by the libanese singer Soumaya Baalbaki is a rare discovery which, again, demonstrates the worldwide fascination for tango. These are the audio samples:

Soumaya Baalbaki: Arabtango

Unfortunately, there is no translation of the lyrics, but we would like to offer a (free) translation of the track titles, at least:

I would give you my eyes
They didn't release me
Once, you came to my garden
It wasn't me who cried
I am in love with you
I am dreaming with you
I love you, and you think of me
For you, oh moon
Oh, you lover of the flowers
