Reem Kelani, the Palestinian singer, musician, musicologist and broadcaster, was born in
England, brought up in Kuwait, and she now lives in London. Reem is both bi-lingual and
bi-cultural. She does her own research, composes and arranges her music, trains and leads
her (mostly non-Arab) musicians in Arabic music, and sings. She is at once respectful of
convention and highly innovative.
Reem’s profile in the Arab and non Arab world continues to grow in equal measure, all the
more to her credit as an unsigned artist who has preserved her independence, musically,
spiritually and politically.
