Making her debut in London and the UK, Macadi Nahhas revives music and songs from Middle Eastern heritage and folklore that are long forgotten, with a subtle mix of styles ranging from classical to oriental, latin to jazz, and drawing heavily on Arabic maqamat and melodic structures. Along with this established repetoire, Macadi is performing tracks from her fifth album Nour featuring her own compositions and arrangements.
A leading voice among Jordanian artists, Macadi has a distinguished voice and an astonishing presence. Born in Amman, her music career began after performing at Jordan’s Jerash Festival of Culture and Arts. Since then, Macadi has performed at numerous international venues and festivals.
