A SWISS SONG OF LOVE FOR OMAN
ON THEIR THIRD OMAN VOYAGE DUST OF SOUL GIVE FINAL TOUCHES TO THEIR SONG “COLOR OF OMAN” AND ARE BEING INVITED BY THE DAILY NEWSPAPER AND OMAN RADIO TO TALK ABOUT THEIR LATEST PROJECT: THE SHOOTING OF A MUSIC VIDEO TO THE SONG
When Saskia Stäuble visited the Sultanate about nine months ago, she felt some positive energy gushing forth within her. She had this unusual feeling as she was returning to her hotel with a friend and pianist, Michael Odermatt. In the evening, they strolled on a beach and visited some mountains. All the while, the otherwise lively Saskia was subdued. She hardly uttered a word to her friend or the cabbie who were trying to cheer her up. As they returned to the hotel in the evening, she began to weep for no reason. She pulled out a paper and pen, and scribbled a few words about what she felt…”
This is how Yousuf Kabeer, a journalist at Oman’s daily newspaper, «Oman Daily Observer», wrote to the heart of Dust of Soul. With touching words about the story of “A Swiss Song of Love for Oman”, Dust of Soul told Kabeer how Oman inspired them and what the love song is about.
Fascinated, Mr. Kabeer listened to Saskia’s tales and Michael’s experiences, which reached very personal depths, and found the origin of Dust of Soul. And how the two musicians became singer Dusty and pianist MiKey. But especially, it lightened the background of how the Swiss Music Duo Dust of Soul found the way to Oman. “The Color of Oman is Love” tells of this unique journey and looks into the depths of Dust of Soul.
“WALK WITH ME, THE WONDERFUL BEACH. SALT IN THE HAIR, RUN, RUN, YOU DON’T CARE. JUMP IN THE WATER, FEEL THE WAVE. I KNOW, YOU ARE SO BRAVE. YOU KNOW, ALL WHAT YOU HAVE IS YOUR MEMORIES. LET ME SEE YOUR EYES, THEN I SEE YOUR SOUL.”
— Lyrics of the song ‘The Color of Oman is Love’
