Saif Shaheen: Eid between Dubai and Mosul

Reem Malkawi and Makhzoom Abadi

Saif Shaheen is an Iraqi guitarist and singer based in Dubai. He celebrates Eid with fond memories of Mousl – the place he was born and stayed until he was ten.

Here in our video, he remembers the excitement of being made new clothes for Eid and enjoying traditional sweets like klecha. Sadly, all that disappeared when Mousl was destroyed by war.

Saif tries to pass down his Iraqi traditions to his children here in Dubai. This Eid, they’ve made a song dedicated to everyone in the world. Make sure to watch our video to hear it.  

Dubai Post wishes you a happy Eid!
