Farid Khodja sings of LOVE and PEACE in the Basilica of Our Lady of Africa

The Algerian public had an appointment, on the evening of Thursday, with a directory of Andalusian heritage, revisited and adapted into a very lyrical version, proposed by Farid Khodja and his ensemble of musicians. Organized at Notre-Dame d’Afrique basilica, this recital has presented many music lovers, adaptations and a notable instrumental fusion, in addition to having taken a very lyrical turn carried by the voice of Farid Khodja and the acoustics of the place.

Soweto Gospel Choir : In the arms of an angel

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There’s always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction
Or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty
Oh and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There’s vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting
Keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack

It don’t make no difference
Escaping one last time
It’s easier to believe
In this sweet madness
Oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of an angel
Fly away from here
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

In the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
