الأرض بتتكلم عربي لفنان الشعب أحمد أسماعيل

The land speaks in Arabic - sung by Ahmed Ismail. I think the lyrics are by Fouad Haddad but this is the first time I hear of Ahmed, I've seen more clips of him on Youtube and while he's no Sheikh Imam, he still does justice to the tradition of "resistance music" and the cause. I highly recommend his rendition of Negm's Nasrallah.

I say you should listen to the original version, Sayyed Mekkawi.

You just reminded me of him, he was my favorite of the egyptian "Giants", his melodies are simple and very close to one's heart.
