Kadim Al Sahir

Kadim Al Sahir is the no.1 Arabic legend. Throughout his 30 year career, he has released over 25 albums totaling more than 100 million in sales, has performed in hundreds of events to millions across the globe, and has earned many lifetime achievements.

Kadim has gained numerous artistic awards including the much respected BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards for “Best Middle Eastern/North African Artist” and “Audience Award”, Jordan Awards for “The Best Arabic Artist”, & Murex d’or for “Lifetime Achievement Legend Award”. His song Ana Wa Leila is the only Arabic song listed and ranks 6th among the ten best songs in the world on BBC. He has performed at the prestigious MGM Grand in Las Vegas, USA, Royal Albert Hall in London, UK, Circus Maximus in Rome, Italy, and Beiteddine & Byblos in Lebanon.

Born an Iraq in 1957, to a simple family, Kadim grew up fueled by passion for creativity. After exploring various forms of art including sculpting, painting, drawing, fashion, poetry, and others, he decided to specialize in music. Soon after he became a multi-instrumentalist, started composing his own music, and sometimes even writing and arranging them.

Kadim then went on to re-define Arabic music with his genius compositions of Arabic poetry, especially that of legendary Syrian romantic poet Nizar Qabbani who hailed Kadim as “The Caesar of Arabic music”, and went on to build a groundbreaking, substantial and enormously popular body of work with huge hits including Ini khayartoki & Zidini ishqan, Quolee ahibuka & Ahibini.
