One of the shortest, but also one of the most intense songs we heard recently, “Ala Hallet ‘Aini” comes off the soundtrack of the French-produced, by Tunisia-based movie “As I Open My Eyes“.

While the song has been written, produced and mixed by Khyam Allami (with lyrics by Ghassan Amami), it was performed by a “fictional band created for the film”, which includes incredible Tunisian singer Baya Medhaffar and Montasser Ayari on oud.

Indeed, this band seems to good to be real, but as dreams sometimes happen to come true, we hope Joujma’s movie theatre origins will eventually lead them to music stages.
