“I always believe music is a universal language. Music has no barriers.
If somebody tells me that music is against the religion and all of that, but I believe music is something that to bring a peace to you.
It’s a message of love. So just spread it. “

A Note from Director:
Friend of mine told me once that there is little store down to burdubai area where chrismas-y songs always hearable around that street. Beside that he got some unique vinyl recorders which possibly falls within my retro intrests!
I made my visit to Intesar shop and I guess as most of you there is immediate attraction to his charector, place and songs plays in store all the time. I have got huge influence from his collection and music taste. since then which I can tell you, it changed my playlist arrangement forever.
I have got inspired many time through out this project specially on his passion to do what he loved to do for the past 25 years.
I like to recommend listening Intesar favorite playlist which also can be found as original cassette, CD or Records in his store as if you may still like to own physical album and experience it like if we’re living in 80's or 90's.
