Yara - Lebanese pop never looked so good
We love this Lebanese beauty - Yara.
She first gained international recognition as the winner of the TV program “Ka'es El Noujoum” (in English, "Cup of Stars"), an Arabic take on American Idol presented on LBC Lebanon. She went on to gain fame as a pop star in her own right, and toured extensively in Jordan, Syria, Egypt, and the Gulf. She has released 3 albums in 3 different Arabic dialects - Egyptian, Lebanese, and Khaliji. We love that international style!
This video for her song Sokkar Zeyadah is trippy! She is definitely not your standard reality TV competition star. In fact this video is stylistically reminiscent of Kanye's recent musical short film Runaway...don't you agree?
