Khyam Allami
Lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon

A self-confessed ‘schizophrenic musician’, Khyam Allami (b. 1981, Damascus) is a multiinstrumentalist, serial collaborator, composer and musical explorer based in Beirut. Allami is largely recognised for his work with his primary instrument, the oud, which has led him to tour internationally. His debut solo album Resonance/ Dissonance was released in 2011 to critical acclaim. In Beirut, Allami is a resident producer, recording and mix engineer at One Hertz Studios and in 2014, he launched his own independent record label Nawa Recordings with Maurice Louca's seminal album Benhayyi Al-Baghbaghan (Salute the Parrot), which he mixed. He has also composed, produced and mixed music for award-winning films such as Leyla Bouzid's As I Open My Eyes (A peine j'ouvre les yeux) (2015).
