The effect of the music, especially the Swat music, will instill pride in both natives of Bahrain and expatriates. The soothing rhythms of artists such as Ahmed Salmeen and Rashed Al Hemeli will make all people from Bahrain feel a unity. This is the aim of the documentary; to make natives and expatriates of Bahrain feel a togetherness. The whole point of this documentary is to show the usefulness of expatriates, thus allowing natives to accept them as equal citizens.
I chose three songs that would fit in with this documentary. They are Yahia Omar Gal Ma shan and Inna Wajdi by Ahmed Salmeen and Mudhena Wa Laisa by Rashed Al Hemeli. The reasons for these particular songs would be the representation of Bahrain. These two artists are popular Swat musicians. My target audience, anyone from Bahrain over the age of sixteen interested in the contributions of expatriates, would be familiar with these songs and format. Swat is a mixture of Persian, Indian, and African blues type. It is very mellow and upbeat, which is the tone I want for my documentary.
