Biography

Ali Khattab (July 4, 1977) is an Egyptian composer and guitarist. In his works, he combines the elements of two musical worlds and
traditions: The Arab-Oriental and the Gypsy-Andalusian, flamenco.
From the age of seventeen, the time when he first starts performing on
stage, everything he does is meant to lead him to two places: the cradle
of flamenco, Jerez de la Frontera. From then on, Ali spends a lot of time in Andalucia ,
meeting and performing with influential flamenco musicians, singers,
guitarists, and dancers who introduce him to the true universe of
flamenco. Following a tour in Spain and the middle east, Ali Khattab's
first album named "Al Zarqa", (Blue eyed brunette) was released in March 2010 in Madrid, Spain. The artist explained that his music as the
name of his album is like a blue eyed brunnete, a mix of two worlds in
perfect harmony.

A work in which, perhaps for the first time we can talk about fusion, not juxtaposition between these two music styles - arabic and flamenco -, because fusion occurs naturally in individuals, here in the person named Ali Khattab. Juan Vergillos. Diario de Sevilla (Spain)
