Dalida was born (and grew up) in Cairo, but her family was Italian. She was yet another wonderfully talented artist who sang and performed in many languages, including Arabic, Italian, Greek, German, French, English, Japanese, Hebrew, Dutch and Spanish. This song was composed by musician Sayed Darwish for the 1919 play “Qulu lu”, and the lyrics are by Egyptian poet Badi’ Khairi. The song speaks about nostalgia for the homeland – lyrics here: http://lyricstranslate.com/en/Salama-Ya-Salama-Salama-Ya-Salama.html. This version from 1977 was a big hit.
