Syrian refugee singer sings Dutch songs


This 25 October 2015 music video is about Syrian singer Shaza Hayek. Ms Hayek arrived as a refugee in Nijmegen in the Netherlands in early 2015.

In the video, she sings the Dutch song ‘Mag ik dan bij jou’ by Claudia de Breij.

The song is about war. It moved Shaza Hayek, as she fled war in Syria.

Nijmegen daily De Gelderlander reports today that she has recorded Arabic translations of this song, and of another Dutch song, by Frank Boeijen.

You can hear Shaza Hayek’s version of ‘Mag ik dan bij jou’ on Soundcloud.

In this live music video, Ms Hayek sings the Arabic song Ya Salama.
