Lebanese-American singer/songwriter Mayssa Karaa shares a new song and video titled “Call Me a stranger”. Born and raised in Lebanon, Mayssa moved to the US, where she has been living for over 12 years now. This song paints a picture of the confusion of national identity that the LA-based musician sometimes experiences.
“This song ‘Call Me a Stranger’ describes my search for my identity and the real me. Somehow when I’m in the US I feel like I’m so Lebanese but then when I visit Lebanon I feel like an American and I’m sure that a lot of people who left the countries they grew up in feel the same and that’s when I wondered: why do we always feel like strangers wherever we go? Hopefully, this song will touch hearts in a positive way.” ~ Mayssa
“Call Me a stranger” is a pop song with an exciting Middle Eastern flavour. Watch the official music video above as you follow Mayssa on Instagram.
