/writer Fahed Isaac and musician Wael Keyboard comes â€œAqmeh Dâ€™Sheta,â€ a colorful childrenâ€™s video about the four seasons of the year ~ Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall (Setwa, Bet-Neesaneh, Qaeta wâ€˜ Chereyeh, Assyrian), respectively.
Translating â€œseasons of the year,â€ Aqmeh Dâ€™Sheta is one of twenty-two childrenâ€™s poems turned songs, all written in the Assyrian (neo-Assyrian) language by Fahed Isaac, also from Canada, due production in the near future in a series of releases, and in a DVD compilation at a later date.
With the assistance of Qashesha (priest, Assyrian) Ninos Ebrahim, the singer, himself a father to three girls, auditioned and trained the Sunday School children from Saint Shmooni Church, where the video was, in part, filmed at, by Ashour Marwan and Mazin Moshi, and at park settings and a theatre throughout Hamilton, Canada, is now available on YouTube.
Produced by Ashour Kings Productions, this video is a desperate response to the slaughtering and evacuation of Assyrian families in homeland Iraq, Aqmeh Dâ€™Sheta seeks to advocate the Assyrian culture in the Western societies among future generations, and is dedicated to Assyriaâ€™s children worldwide.
Coming soon, runner-up video about â€œcolors.â€
This article is a homage to John Homehâ€™s production of â€œBibleh D’Atour.”
