Francesco and his Arabic Pop Music


Francesco Cascavilla, 23, is from Italy – I met him near Kottbusser Tor in Kreuzberg. When I asked him what he was listening to, he produced a rugged iPad playing Yaba El Halal by Haifa Webhe. He laughed and explained that it was Lebanese Pop music.


I believe his Arabic pop is a fantastic soundtrack for walking through Kreuzberg’s largely Arabic neighbourhood around Kotti. Check out Haifa Webhe’s glamorous video for Yaba El Halal below.
