Campaign successfully funded on: 14 May,2016
Strings from the past" or Awtar mn Al Madi is the name that launched my first album on which I worked on for three consecutive years, the main idea of this project is centred about combining each of the guitar and orchestra. Of course this is kind of a new style of music which is usually hard to find in the Arab world music albums and perhaps in the whole world.
The first album will include some of famous Oriental
melodies accompanied by great oriental guitar music with orchestra which I
presented with my personal touch, most of these musical compositions will
be as rearrange of the Arab folkloric songs & other well-known ones.

I finally reached my goal, After 3 years of hard work.You will be a great support to me in order to start my sequential music Album projects with the same orchestral style.The other important part of my object is to compose elegant orchestral music from the Arab world combines guitar & orchestra lovers all over the world. In this way I will show the world that the Arab people have elegant & modern sense of music that simulates the international music works all around the world.
I imagine myself as one of those famous
musicians in both the Arab and the whole world focusing on my new ideas about
the guitar in the Arab world, which is a dream I grow with since my childhood.
The following link, will guide you to the Four of my works that will be included in the album, I wish you could feel the same that I felt when I composed these pieces of art.
I did connect passion from the bottom of my
heart along with important messages to the whole world & especially for my lovely country … Syria, calling for
love, peace and brotherhood. On the other hand I did two musical videos about the Syrian history and in particular for my city, Aleppo. You can watch them on my YouTube channel.
This project means the world to me.
Help me to produce this work independently,
apart from the production companies which could affect
the main goal, or even the quality of the music compositions as they change
everything to be a commercial kind of music as it is currently.
What I need is: Huge Publishing of the Album, to introduce it properly to the world. and this is by simple & elegant design along side with burning the CDs, labels , advertisement, forming the orchestra band, and doing great music concerts in different parts of the world. Here your turn has just begun….
I will need not less than 85000$ to achieve what have said before, especially forming the orchestra band. This needs time, efforts and money to interview the musicians, rent a place for the rehearsal as well as good sound system for the upcoming Concerts. I know the number seems to be big but if you will think that it will go to do all these things and especially making orchestra band you will feel that it's only helping with the starts
Help me to make a dream come true, to make my goal an independence project that can fly all over the world spreading all what I feel of love, peace, & purity.
Recently, MBC channel focused on what I did. This is the link of the
interview that occur on the famous program “Good Morning Arabs “,this interview
centred about my orchestral –guitar work. It is my dream that will come true
with your help only. I am waiting your emotional & Material support to be
heard all over the world...
Any contribution from your side will make a huge difference & have a very significant impact on the project, even if it is sharing this among friends. Your love means everything to me.
The results of reaching each of the millstones in the project:
8500$ I will be able to release the album and do basic advertisements. (DONE)
18000$ I will be able to do more advertisements including the radio.
35000$ I will be able to buy some equipments that will help in the concerts in the feature
50000$ in this stage I will be able to start planning to do interviews with the musicians and make the orchestra but without being able to do concerts with support and without being able to rent a place to rehearse for long time.
85000$ in this stage the orchestra will have the ability to have its own equipments and to start the concerts seriously which is the biggest dream to me and to the most of the musicians to give happiness to you to the audience.
I started playing guitar in 2004/2005 I was 19 years old. In less than 2 years I played many classical and flamenco pieces.
In 2008, I started a long term study to master the guitar techniques and music arranging. Only then, after I learned so much about arranging I started to think seriously about my own album. Since that time I was consequently improving myself and reaching my aim by continued learning and searching about the world of music arranging. In 2011 I started to write and record small music compositions. By the end of 2012 I linked some videos with my home country and I started to received wonderful reactions from the fans which lead to the seed of the first Album. Consequently I put my personal compositions to the next stage which is the second Album.
You, who have a dream, cannot stop. Only by patience and hard work anybody can achieve what their wants. This is very important, because I can give hope to the young people who didn't believe in the ability of achieving a dream. I didn't go to the High Institute and specialized places for teaching music, on the contrary I resorted to books and intensive research.
It is a great thing to be able to reflect my big passion for orchestra & guitar through my work. I strongly believe in the power of the orchestra to convey the feelings. When I see the huge number of music instruments, I feel as if I am in a big city where everybody speaks music and only music.
I have influenced by the international artists Yanni and Jesse Cook. They have a completely two different methods in arranging and playing music, but this is the crux of beauty for me and this is exactly what I feel. A mix of simple guitar music accompanied by ornate and beautiful orchestra all wrapped with a nice and clear scarf from the eastern sense and Eastern touches.
Many people cannot Support this musical project with money but I'm sure
they can support it emotionally. Emotional support is much stronger. Spread the
news about this project among your friends, in social media or any other
contact means that you know, and remember that everything is possible. I did
not expect so much love in the beginnings, but I found the support I need and
still need from your love.
There are no updates for this project yet.
