Written by Wendy Merdian

Not the Austrian Alps, but the seven hills of Amman are echoing with the sound of music, thanks to the addition of the National Conservatory of Music (NCM) to Jordan’s cultural repertoire. Nestled in the valley of Ras Al Ein overlooking the heart of old Amman, the new facilities of the Conservatory is a part of the Hussein Cultural Center.

Editorial: Working Together to Protect Children’s Health

December 8, 2007

By Dr. Rana Hajjeh and Dr. Najwa Khuri-Bulos This week in Amman, leaders from across the Arab world are meeting to focus attention on an all-too-often ignored subject: childhood vaccines. For more than a century, vaccines have proven to be one of the world’s most effective public health tools. Yet, despite the Arab region’s advances in healthcare many Arab countries have fallen behind in achieving the goal of universal vaccination. Arab countries share a common culture and language – but there is a huge chasm when it comes to providing childhood vaccines.

7iber.com sat down with, Aziz Maraka, the father of 'razz' to get the inside scoop on the motivation and inspiration of this rising musician. 7iber: Tell us a little about yourself, where you grew and where you hail from.

I always had a keyboard that I played, and did a few updates on the kind of keyboard I owned. I started taking piano lessons with Travelian Sako when I was 12 years old. I have an 8th grade certificate granted from Trinity College - London in piano. To be honest, I never cared for Classical Performance, but I always had a thing for Composition, so in 2001, I went to the Music Academy of Jordan for one year, then I...
