“Somalia Ha Noolaato” is a deeply personal, faintly nostalgic song to Aar Maanta, encapsulating lost childhood dreams, and striving for peace and reconciliation. The song resonates with millions of Somalis in diasporic communities who despite having picked-up other languages and cultures still remain unwaveringly loyal their heritage and native land.
Somalia’s Sports and Performing Arts communities have always had a close relationship, one that unfortunately recently cost the lives of the President of Somali Olympic Committee, Aden Yabarow Wiish, and Somali Football Federation Chief, Said Mohamed Nur, both killed on April 4th 2012 in a terror blast at a celebratory event to commemorate the re-opening of Mogadishu’s National Theatre.
The proceeds from the sales of the single will go directly towards the Somali Olympic
Committee’s initiatives to help encourage and sustain motivation within adolescent Somalis participating in sports by funding the development of training facilities in Mogadishu and other parts of the country where the need for sports participation is greatest.
