Playing on Al Baal right now is a Somali song called ileeya, from the album Moonlight.
One of their most famous singers is Xasan Adan Samatar. The letter X in the Somali language is the equivalent of the letter haa or 7 in the Arabic language. (Xasan=Hassan)
Many of you have probably never heard Somali music before, but I bet you have all met or come across Somali people. They have a fascinating language and culture. The sound of the language is soft, yet distinct. Thanks to my many Somali friends, I have picked up some of their language and music.
Ps. All the links I have provided you with have music you can listen to with one click. The most comprehensive guide to Somali Music can be found here.
