A Niqabi Singer - nATo

Salam Maal Hijrah to all Muslim friends and a very good evening to others.

Just now I was looking for a video on youtube about NATO and surprise, surprise.... I saw this video of a Tajik singer called nATo.

I don't understand her song. Does anyone know? But she sure can sing. And I love her niqab style so much. It's beautiful.

Here's the video.

What do you think? Isn't she looks great? And BTW, I searched about her on wikipedia and I got this info:
"n.A.T.o., Natalya Shevlyakova (Russian: Наталья Шевлякова), is a Russian singer of Russian and Georgian origin. She is known for dressing in traditional Arab style and singing in the languages of Tajik, Persian and Uzbek. The Project was started in 2004 by Russian producer Ivan Shapovalov and was last seen performing in Germany in May 2005. She is an anti-imperialist."
Sorry, I don't know whether she's Muslim or not because lots of the comments in YT were really assumption. That's all.

That is soo weired!!! Well to me it seems like she using the niqaab as a gimmik - to gain attention.

Dear NiDa,
I was thinking that the 1st time I saw her on YT and people are saying she wants' to protect her identity by wearing the niqab because her songs mostly about Muslims.

Niqabis wear pants?!

I don't think so, but she does have a really nice voice and the niqab is cute.

Yeah, you can see some niqabis wearing pants like Pakistanis' salwar kameez. I met a few here in Kelantan and I sometimes also wear it with a long tunic for outdoor activities.

She looks beautiful, masAllah. Doesn't matter to me if she's really Muslimah or not.
BTW, my husband speaks dari and can understand some tajik because it's so similar. He said it's something like "my heart blew up" LOLLL!! I'll have my BIL look at it.

M.J. "my heart blew up" - is that the meaning of "be umide" the title of the song?
