On the Music of Al-Wāḥa 2019!

Published: September 1, 2019

Ahlan wa sahlan! Welcome back to our blog!

One of the coolest parts of being at the Concordia Language Villages is learning all the new music in another language! Here at Al-Wāḥa, we are no different, and we thought it would be a great idea to highlight some of the different types of music you will encounter as a villager at Al-Wāḥa!

Some of our music is used to directly teach the Arabic language, such as in the following songs, where we learn the alphabet, days of the week, and countries of the Arab world.




Other music is familiar and comfortable, such as these songs that we love to teach at the campfire.



We also have some songs that we translated from English to Arabic, such as Wicked's "For Good" and John Denver's "Country Roads"!



Other songs are medleys, which we've used in song exchanges with other villages.


There is music that we love to dance to...




and music involving drums.




Finally, some of our music is chants or cheers.


We hope you enjoyed this look at the music of  Al-Wāḥa, and we're excited to see you back at our next blog post! For more articles about the Arabic language and more, follow us on Twitter! For more videos of our village activities, visit our YouTube channel.
