James mentioned Haifa Wehbe in a recent post, which is as good an excuse as any to have a new series of random foreign pop culture posts in the coming days.  Here is a video of one of Haifa Wehbe’s songs, and here is an old favourite of mine from her fellow Lebanese star Nawal al-Zoghbi.  Coming in the near future, I will try to revive my old series of Armenian poetry-related posts.
