Bahrain's 10 Best Art and Culture Events in Summer 2014 — theculturetrip.com

Another contribution to the Bahrain Summer Festival will be the much-awaited musical performance of internationally acclaimed Iraqi singer, musician and composer Ilham Al-Madfai. Beginning as a guitarist, he and his band are said to be the first in the Arab world to utilise ‘modern’ instruments, including guitar, drums, bass and piano, which allowed him to create a distinctive style that crosses modern sounds with traditional Arabic folk songs. Attracted to jazz, and later discovering the Spanish guitar, his music gained in popularity and made a huge contribution to the development of the Arab world’s musical heritage and development, bringing new life to traditional songs.
