**Faves 2 and 4. All tracks FCC clean

1. Haya Zaatry sings ‘Mnakeer’ in a slow, deliberately mundane way.
2. **Jowan Safadi and Haya Zaatry sing a slow duet ‘Ji2tu ila Ahli’ [I Came to My Family] about being rejected by one’s family for taking off one’s mask.
3. Jowan Safadi sings ‘Qenaa Jded’ [New Mask] a mid tempo song with lots of bass guitar.
4. **The group Jam Tkseer [Broken Plural] sings a soft ballad titled ‘Qaseeda Sherera’ [Evil Poem] with lyrics based on a poem by Nizar Qabbani.
5. Raymond Haddad and Maisa Daw duet on this indie track called ‘Ana Hurra Bi Hali’ [I am Free to Be Myself] with a poetic, lyrical delivery about not wanting to be judged.
6. Jam Tkseer sing ‘Zomzom’ about a boy who likes to dress like a girl.
7. Abu rabus singing ‘Thalath Qasaed’ Narration in classical Arabic about gender roles accompanied by bizarre sounds.
8. Rola Azzar sings ‘Bahebk’ [I Love You] addressing a specifically female lover. Sounds like a French chanson, but in Arabic.
