Hoda Saad - Ertaht

Moroccan singer Hoda Saad's debut album is a mellow, mostly traditional one. Hoda skillfully sings in the Egyptian, Lebanese, and Khaliji dialects, as well as her native Moroccan dialect. Hoda's soft, feminine voice does not instantly distinguish itself, but it is good and well-employed throughout the album. Hoda works with some of the top names in the business, including Walid Saad, Salim Salameh, Mahmoud Khayami, and Mohamed Rifai. Looking like Egyptian songstress Sherine can't hurt either.

Nice album.
Is she lebanese?
It's funny because in most of albums that are released recently contains khaleejian song. It really became a trend :P

People can say what they want, but unlike some of the other big labels like Melody or Mazzika, Rotana's singer always have at least some vocal prowess. Not counting the 4 Cats of course *cringes* Her video clipped song, "Ma Sadda'", reminds me of another Sherine-a-like (:-P) who I can't remember the name of right now, but I think she only used her first name, and she's only done one album, and it was divided into slow and fast songs :-P Anyway, it's promising, I hope this has some good ballads that she handles well - if not, some good uptempo songs that she handles well :-P

You're welcome guys :D. chsf, did you mean Somaya?
And mohamed, you're right, it's a great album. Also, Jit Nsidou is a type of Moroccan song we don't hear much outside of the Maghreb area. Mostly we hear Rai, or slow songs with Moroccan lyrics. The Khaliji song is not bad, it's just not very interesting :P. Definitely a good start for Hoda.
