Akram Abdulfattah

Akram?s style creates a world of fusion music that is influenced by Hindu, Turkish, and Persian styles, reflecting the rich legacy and culture of oriental sounds in a modernised fashion.?His talent received national and international recognition as he formed the youngest Palestinian musical quartet, won prestigious awards and engaged in various international and cross-culture projects, most significantly the Marcel Khalifa Competition, and the National Music Competition for Ensembles.Between 2009 and 2013, Akram played in almost all of the major Palestinian music projects and participated in several international concerts. He collaborated with respected musicians like Simon Shaheen, Bassam Saba, Kamil Shajrawu, Yousef Hbeich, and performed with singers and pop artists from Palestine and from the Arab world including Mohammed Assaf, Dalal Abu Amny, Nai Barghouthi, Sanaa Mousa, Asalah Nasri, Elham Madfa?e, and Hani Mitwasi. During these years, Akram participated in multiple prestigious international festivals and events in Sweden, North Africa, USA, Lebanon, Arab Gulf, and collaborated with several pop artists on instrumental projects. This eventful period of Akram?s career culminated in touring with Mohammed Assaf as a violin soloist (2013-2015), during which he also composed and recorded Awan?s first album (2014).In 2016 Akram decided to take a break from the pop and classical music in order to focus fully on achieving his goal of transforming music to a universal language of love, peace, and justice. As an independent artist, he had to overcome several challenges inherent in an underdeveloped Palestinian instrumental music field that lacked resources and infrastructure. In the same year Akram composed and recorded Jawa; his first fusion album in collaboration with musicians from Sweden and Palestine, introducing an elegant mixture of pop, jazz, and modern and classic Arabic music.Inspired by his love for the Carnatic violinist L. Shankar, Akram made a journey to the far East in 2018 to further refine his music style and combine elements of the Indian music in the Arabic music. This journey led to Akram collaborating with various international artists including Sukkanya Ramgopal, Ambi Subramaniam, Joy Sarkar (India West Bengal) HK Vankatram (India) Omar Faruk Tekbilek (Turkey), and Brian Kean (USA). In the same year, Akram formed the Monologue Music Ensemble with musicians from India, Sweden, and USA, and produced his second cross-cultural album. In 2019, Akram formed the Sirat Trio; an Indo-Arab Instrumental trio in collaboration with Mandola Joy and Rupak Dhamankar.Akram Abdulfattah?s latest music album is From Here, an acoustic-electric-synth music production that aims to focus on the modernization of the Arab-classical violin in a mixture of Palestinian traditional folk music, Turkish music, rock, jazz and experimental music. Each track reflects memories and emotions from Akram?s childhood and both feelings of belonging and estrangement.
