“Soukura (It’s Late)”, speaks of ‘secrets untold that must melt and pour out someday’. The over-arching common theme is migration/immigration, and while that is never overtly addressed in a didactic sense, it is the common denominator.
“Habibi Taal” (my love come here) is about where a woman sings to her lover to come and be with her across all distances and different lands.
