Shortly About Me

A Syrian composer and oud player from Damascus. My compositions are inspired by my memories of Syria and how those memories are carried with me throughout my travels. Together with musicians and musical styles from around the world, I have co-founded, composed for and played with bands and orchestras in Damascus, Beirut, Istanbul and more recently, across Europe. Currently based in Berlin, my long-standing passion for the fusion of classical Arabic and Middle Eastern music with other music genres such as Jazz, Flamenco, and Western Classical music continues to find fertile ground.

I have also co-founded four bands in Berlin and currently composes music for them. The first band, Matar, consists of Syrian and German musicians working on merging Middle Eastern Arabic Classical Music and Western Classical music. SINGA, is a Syrian-German music group that infuses jazz music with a Middle Eastern spirit. Naranja, performs Andalusian Music, and the fourth band is “Nabil & Matthias”, a Syrian-German duo balancing Oud solos with Latino rhythms.
