Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Following the worldwide success of her first feature film Caramel (2006), "Where do we go now?" is the second film of the director Nadine Labaki. Entirely shot in Lebanon from October to December 2010, the movie was presented during the Cannes Film Festival. Thanks to his great understanding of Nadine Labaki's work and his extreme ability to visualize the images of the film and to translate them into music just from reading the script, Khaled Mouzanar created and orchestrated a real musical piece with other musicians and singers. The song lyrics are by Tania Saleh, a very good friend of theirs and an extremely gifted artist.
