We have for today Mayssa Karaa’s stunning Arabic Adaptation of Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb, featuring Scott Page of Pink Floyd. One of the greatest songs of all time with an oriental twist! How did this happen? The musical synergy kicked off when Mayssa met Scott in an Exclusive Music event in LA when he heard her Arabic interpretation of Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit“(featured on American Hustle movie).
It’s a delicate interplay between voice, sax and band members. An accomplished approach from Arabic to English and back again with such fluidity and exceptional instrumentation. Within 3 days the song was translated, rearranged as musicians had been flown to LA from Boston and San Francisco for the final videography cuts. A dedicated explorer and a restless combiner of her tradition and modernity Mayssa is bound to surprise us even more in the future with her beautiful voice.
