BIOGRAPHY

A major creative force and a powerful voice for her generation, Egyptian 
singer and songwriter Maryam Saleh composes and performs music that is 
personal, political and philosophical; intense, intelligent Egyptian music with 
Arabic language and influences of Trip Hop and Psych Rock. 
 
In the past year, Maryam has played widely across the Arab World. In Egypt 
she has performed at venues including El Genaina Theater and Bibliotheca 
Alexandrina, where she launched her album Mesh Baghanny (‘I don’t sing’) in 
2012. Maryam has appeared at the Palestine International Festival in 
Ramallah, and in Jordan and the Lebanon. She also takes part in projects 
with musicians from around the Arab World, including Zeid Hamdan 
(Lebanon), Tamer Abu Ghazaleh (Palestine) and Maurice Louca (Egypt). 
 
Since success collaborating with a number of bands and music projects, 
including the BarakA band, with whom she blended rock music with Sheikh 
Imam’s songs, Maryam has forged a path as a solo artist, recording and 
performing her own projects and collaborations. Using her muscular, alluring 
vocals and charismatic stage presence (which is informed by her acting 
experience: she has starred in a number of independent film productions), 
Maryam brings her inventive contemporary compositions to life.
