Artwork for Gaïsha – Ghalat single release

Gaïsha’s latest single “Ghalat” is a moving tribute to the late Egyptian poet Abdelhamid Farag, who passed away in 2020. The track, released on November 5, 2021, showcases the exquisite vocals of Belgian-Moroccan singer Aicha Haskal, whose voice seamlessly switches between Arabic chants, parlando, and rap.

The lyrics of “Ghalat” were written by Farag himself, a self-proclaimed “poète de l’éloignement” known for his deeply melancholic and romantic poetry. Through his words, Farag weaves a tale of longing and heartache, perfectly captured by Haskal’s emotive performance.

The track’s instrumentation perfectly complements the emotional weight of the lyrics, with hauntingly beautiful melodies and intricate rhythms that draw the listener in and hold them captive until the very end.

As a tribute to Farag’s profound influence on their music, Gaïsha has poured their hearts and souls into “Ghalat”, delivering a powerful and deeply moving tribute that is sure to leave a lasting impact on listeners.

This single is just a taste of what’s to come from Gaïsha, who are set to release their highly anticipated debut album early next year. With their unique blend of oriental and psychedelic grooves, infused with a distinctly Brussels twist, the band is poised to take the music scene by storm.

Stay tuned for more from Gaïsha, and don’t miss out on “Ghalat”, a powerful tribute to a true poetic legend.
