I wonder if there is such a thing as a good addiction…
Why am I asking this question, you wonder ?
Well, I believe I’m addicted to music, my day is always completely empty and boring without it.
I wake up to music, I walk the streets listening to music, I study, work and even write listening to music, I even analyze situations listening to music…
There is no theory. You only have only to listen and pleasure is the law. That’s why I love music passionately. And because l love it, I love sharing it and talking about the latest tracks I’m obsessed with most of the time.
I’ve been blasting my summer playlist on the way back home from my internship and updating it in a daily basic and I’ve got a facebook group, 1452 members and one admin to thank for that :
Dounia Lamharzi, she is geniunely one of the people that EVERYONE seems to know and that EVERYONE should know because she’s behind this AMAZING facebook group called : … Ces chansons qui nous font découvrir le 7ème Ciel … and trust me, there’s no better description than the name of the group itself !
Today is her birthday and so I wanted to wish her a very happy one by -well I sure you’ve guessed it- writing an article about how AWESOME this young lady is…
Her group has been on my daily internet/Facebook check list for over a year now… And I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF IT !
So, I had to get to know Dounia and ask her about life, music and her very successful facebook group. In fact, we have just finished a 46 minutes phone call right now !
So before you go check her answers, I’d like to wish, once again, a very happy birthday to Facebook’s Music Queen, Dounia Lamharzi.
Check the 10 questions interview below with Dounia.
1. So for those who don’t know you by now, why don’t you tell us a little bit about yourself, when and why did you start your facebook group?
I’d like to start by saying that I’m a perfect imperfection, I’m very spontanious, I love life, musique and the power of communication. I’ve turned 23 today and I’m currently doing an internship in Nantes, France.
As for my group, I believe that it has to do with my passion for music. I’ve always been fascinated about how I can associate music with differents places, people and memories, how I can get to know a person through a simple playlist and how music can switch your mood in a matter of seconds…
So I thought why not create a group where I can share my favorite tracks with other people and at the same time keep my personal playlist updated all the time.
2. How do you think your facebook group stands out amongst other music facebook groups?
I think what’s very interesting about my facebook group is that, throughout time, a certain musical style was determined and nourrished in a daily basis by hundreds of people who are spontaneously sharing their own favorite tracks.
So I believe that the freedom that has been given through … Ces chansons qui nous font découvrir le 7ème Ciel … is what makes the group stand out among other music facebook groups.
3. How would you describe your musical style ?
My musical style depends on my mood, I listen to everything as long as the music moves something inside of me, it doesn’t matter if it’s Pop, rock, RnB, Jazz or Soul.
4. What are your favourite bands ?
When it comes to bands, I love the basic oldies and some new pop and rock bands.
5. What is your all time favorite song ?
I know it’d be a surprise to a lot of people but if I could listen to one song for the rest of my days it’d definitely be: Madrasat lhoub by Kadem Saher 😀
6. What are your favorite album of 2011 ?
I’d say Maroon 5 – Hands all Over
7. What’s your ringtone song right now ?
It’s Freed from Desire by Gala.
8. Have you ever been to a concert ? What was so special about it ?
Yes, I have been to concert last august in Nantes, it was a Jazz concert called Rendez vous de l’erdre and what was special about it is the concept in itself. And believe it or not, the stage was actually on water !
9. What’s on your iPod / bookshelf / DVD player at the moment?
- Ipod: Angus and Julia – Big Jet Plane
- Bookshelf: Milan Kundera- Risibles Amour
- DVD Player: Coco, I’d actually rather watch a football match than a movie !
10. Name 5 songs you would suggest to anyone who’s reading this post ?
Dounia, thank you SO much for this interview and we can’t wait to listen to all the new songs you’re going to post in the group.
