Zaffat al-Hilu (The procession of the Beautiful Bride)
Summer, 1995, Detroit Area.
Bells Band (Majid Kakka, director, lead singer, and keyboard player; Salam Kakka and Johny Sana, percussion synthesizers)
Tonight we do the Zaffah for the bride and groom of the black eyes [a sign of beauty].
The ring that she’s wearing is shining all over her dress;
There is nothing else like it in the market.
Congratulations to you (two), the beloved ones
