  • Recognised as one of the greatest voices of Tunisia, Dorsaf Hamdani likes to broaden her horizons, both in space and time. A student of malouf, the Arab Andalusian music of Tunisia, and of the semi-classic genres that appeared in the Mashriq in the 20th century, she learnt western music theory and experimented with fusion music, receiving countless awards in her country and abroad... 
    She's an indefatigable traveller, from master class to encounter with the masters, from festivals to a doctorate in musicology at the Sorbonne. She's sung at the Cairo Opera and worked with the greatest artists in Arabic music, such as Salah Ghoubachi or Selim Sahab. In 2010, she took part in the creation of Ivresses, based on the poetry of Omar Khayyam, along with Persian singer Alireza Ghorbani—which was met with critical and public acclaim. Looking to the east, towards Lebanon and Egypt and the great Arab voices, she led the project Emirat el tarab (Princesses of Arabic Songs), which brought together songs by Umm Kulthum, Fairuz, and Asmahan.  
    Proud of her radiant multiculturalism and always looking for artistic truth, Dorsaf Hamdani embodies the mutations of the modern  mediterranean.
