The Sonic Society

Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

Syrian Soap

_89261757_singer_think976While Radio Alwan operates on a shoe-string budget, its dreams and creativity are surely gifts of avarice. This article from BBC News explains the power of this Syrian soap opera on the radio:

A sorrowful woman’s voice begins to sing – and even if you don’t speak a word of Arabic you can guess that the radio soap opera Sad Northern Nights is going to dig much deeper than the usual kitchen-sink drama.

“She’s lamenting her lost homeland,” Sami, Radio Alwan’s special projects director smiles ruefully. “She’s singing, “we want to come back to you, we want to be reunited, we won’t wait until tomorrow until all your wounds are healed.”
