September 13, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Friends of Jordan Festivals is proud to host Marcel Khalife once more at the Amman Citadel as part of Jordan Festival 2016.
Born in Beirut, an interpreter of music and oud performer, Marcel Khalife is also a composer who is deeply attached to Arab culture. He associates his music with great Arab poets, which renews the character of Arabic songs, and aims to break its stereotype, and advances the culture of all Arab culture.
Since 1974, Marcel Khalife has been composing music, his work has been critically acclaimed both in the Arab World and worldwide. His creativity, innovations and his educational and humanitarian concerns and contribution to the promotion of arts and Cultures in The Arab world has earned him tens of awards of the years. His style is characterized by integration between Arab music and Western musical instruments. His music works around the classical Arabic oud but also includes jazz piano and many other influences. His playing techniques expand far outside those of classical oud playing, however, and he is attributed for having greatly expanded the horizons of this traditional Arabic instrument.
