People do not want wars. They want to come together peacefully and play football against each other.

To set a sign for peace: Russian composer Roman Voronenko, German lyricist Ingo Clemenz, Ukrainian mastering engineer Jury Arefyev and German artist Lady Volcano have together produced the Fifa World Cup Qatar Song 2022: „Welcome to Qatar“. (Release: 3rd of May 2022)

The video for the song is now being shot in Sinai on 18th of May 2022. The Arabic-speaking artist has worked in Egypt for many years and has long-standing ties to Egypt. Due to her role in the popular Egyptian TV series „Sonbol“, her face is known throughout the Mena region. In her role, she played the film daughter of Lotfi Damanhouri, played by Gamil Ratib, who already starred in the legendary film „Lawrence of Arabia“ with Omar Sherif.  For the shoot, Lady Volcano commissioned the Egyptian Mohammed Ibrahim with his film production company „Story Tellers Production“.

 

Since the World Cup is taking place in Qatar and the artist wanted to express her long-standing ties to the Arab world, there is an Arabic part in the English song: „Taala ila Qatar, Taala ila Qatar, Merhaban bikum fi kas al aelam….“ which means: „Come to Qatar, Come to Qatar, Be welcome to the World Cup!“
