Single Saturdays: Amr Diab – Yetalemo

Amr Diab has released another song from the album Kol Hayaty (All My Life) entitled Yetalemo (They’re Learning)*. The song tells the story of a man who falls in love at first sight.

The music of Yetalemo reminds of Amr Diab’s older material from the late 90s and early 2000s. The instruments heard in this song are Qanun and Darabukka (Egyptian Tabla- chalice drum). I believe there’s also the subtle sound of a Loud. The combination of the sounds of these musical instruments creates a joyful and fun tune.
Amr Diab’s voice is smooth and consistent. It’s in sync with the music. The quality of his voice has gotten greater over time. He impresses every time I hear him sing.

The lyrics have incredible rhymes throughout the song. There are poetic techniques that give the tune its richness such as repetition and personification. The examples of recurrence are repeating the word Yetalemo and Adda (transmitted). At the beginning of each verse, you can hear the word Yetalemo, which emphasizes the subject of how people will learn about how his attraction to his love interest is getting stronger.

Yetalemo is the fifth single for Amr Diab. The album Kol Hayaty will be released October 3, 2018.
