Single Saturdays: Khaled Mounib – Aarfa Nafsaha

Egyptian singer Khaled Mounib has released a new single entitled Aarfa Nafsaha (She knows herself). It’s a love song telling the story of a man who describes how his life improved since the presence of the woman he loves -like a before and after.

The music is Arabic Pop similar to the classic style of Tarab. Mimo composed the song. The main instrument heard in this tune is the piano along with the trombone. There’s a romantic feel to this song. The beat is slow and relaxing.

Khaled Mounib’s voice has improved, developing his distinct vocal style. It has gotten more vibrant. I can hear the inspiration of late his late Amer Mounib in his singing. He sings beautifully and romantically. Khaled Mounib knows how to stay in sync with the rhythm.

The lyrics are simple but have a deep meaning of love and romance. There’s a sense of appreciation to the subject of the song. A poetic technique used in this song is repetition, to emphasize the romantic feeling. There are two rhyme structures: AABB and ABBA. AABB is the primary rhyme structure, including the chorus. However, in the beginning, there’s the ABBA structure. There’s beauty in the simplicity of the words, as achieved in this song.

Aarfa Nafsaha is available in streaming sites. Enjoy!
