My December’s 13′ Music Page

Jawanna’s Playlist


By Jawanna Sawalha

Having my own music page has always been something I’ve always wanted, as mainstream dictates, I thought to share my side of interests, of both mixes. Mixing everything on this page, from mainstream pop, to the underrated artists around the world, including the emerging ones here in the Middle East, and as My.Kali is perceived to be a bit exclusive and an underground webzine, so should be the magazine’s music taste. Therefore, this page is personal, peculiar, emotional, and simple. Hope you like this cut.
