He’s my Elvis and MJ, my example of simplicity and sophistication, and my recipe for emotion, lyric, and music. Kathem al Saher is a singer, composer and poet but also a man with refined manners and great poise.

As a kid he sold his bicycle for a guitar, began writing songs and eventually joined Baghdad’s music academy to pursue his talent. A modern interpretation to classical Arabic music; his style is articulate and expressive, simple yet rich.

How could I possibly have a favourite song?!
