As the dramatic thriller film “Flight 404” soars in popularity, the end credits song has sparked curiosity and discussion.
It features Layla Murad’s famous performance of ‘Ya Rayehin Lil-Nabi’ from 1953, one of the most famous Sufi poems by Rabia Al-Adawiya, “Rahti Ya Akhwati Fi Khalwati”, as composed by Riad Al-Sanbati and Abu Al-Saoud Al-Ibiary.
Director Hany Khalifa and writer Mohamed Raga cleverly integrate the renowned song “Ya Rayehin Lil-Nabi” into the film’s core, marking their first collaboration – which promises further intriguing projects in the future.
In an effort to present an innovative, artistic experience, Kareem Gaber, also known as “Al-Waili”, was assigned by the production company to intertwine it with Rabia Al-Adawiya’s poem.
Al-Waili couldn’t wait to breathe new life into the song, honoring Layla Murad’s legacy while crafting a fresh arrangement.
Lending her voice to this musical adventure, Nada Abbas delivers the verses in a captivating new style while Al Waili’s masterful touch crafts the music and arrangement.
