Naim Al Asmar
Lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon

(b. 1984, Beirut) is a singer, musician and composer working in multiple cultural traditions and musical repertoires. Schooled in piano, the trumpet and the oud at the Lebanese National Higher Conservatory of Music, he later studied Musicology at Antonine University in Baabda, Lebanon. He has co-founded and performed in several music groups which interpret lyrical genres from the region's repertoire – from 19th-century Levantine renaissance traditions and classical 20th-century Arabic music to Syriac, Byzantine and Islamic chanting. In 2012, Asmar ventured into musical theatre and opera, interpreting original compositions of contemporary Arabic music for these settings.
