About Farah Siraj

The music of Jordanian virtuoso Farah Siraj is heard all over the world. She has performed at the United Nations, the Nobel Prize Hall, and the World Economic Forum. She had a #1 hit in India and her humanitarian songs have touched audiences from refugees in camps in Darfur to European royalty. Farah had her first break at 16, with a sold-out record that established her among the pioneers of female band leaders in Jordan. In 2011, Farah released her solo album NOMAD, which fuses influences of Middle Eastern music, flamenco, jazz, bossa, and pop, with lyrics in Arabic, Spanish, and English, and musicians from five continents. Soon after that came her Arabian Jazz Project (2012), and her 2014 release: Dunya. The Farah Siraj performance group is: Farah Siraj, Andreas Arnold, Andres Rotmistrovsky, and Marcelo Woloski.
