He is a composer from Egypt. He works as a Professor of theory and electracoustic at the Composition and conducting Department of Cairo Conservatory, Academy of Arts (University of Arts in Cairo).A synthesis of Western and Eastern styles in my music reflects my own cross-cultural perspective and experience. I think music can play in important role in promoting a better understanding and appreciation among Western and Arab peoples.
He has recently returned from America, specifically, from Boston, Massachusetts, where he was Visiting Scholar of Composition with a sabbatical leave at School of Music, Boston University.
