    Issam Arabo- Tescopa

    One of the coolest Chaldean songs I've heard, especially songs dedicated to a village, let's all remembers our days in Tescopa mathan when we hear this. Also, Issam has made in my view the best song (out of dozens sung) about Alqosh, on his website www.issamarabo.com...
