Info

Reem Kelani, the Palestinian singer and musicologist was born in Manchester, brought up in Kuwait and lives in London.
She has led major tours with her band to Syria, Turkey, China, and Seattle. In 2015, Reem performed in Sir Karl Jenkins’ Stabat Mater at the Royal Albert Hall, and in 2014, she solo-ed alongside the Bergen Philharmonic and a 250-strong choir in Orlando Gough’s “Stemmer”.
Reem is bi-lingual and bi-cultural, appealing equally to Arab and non-Arab audiences. She combines musicality, meticulous field research, excellent Arabic language and adherence to the conventions of classical Arabic singing. Reem composes and arranges her own material. She has given lectures and workshops at Istanbul’s Bosphorus University, Seattle’s Cornish College of the Arts, London’s Goldsmiths College, Shanghai’s Conservatory of Music, Damascus’ Higher Institute of Music, and in schools across the UK.
Reem also wrote and presented “Songs for Tahrir” for BBC Radio 4 on the music of the Egyptian Revolution (2012) and two series of Distant Chords on the music of migrant communities in the UK (2003).
2016 saw the release of “Reem Kelani: Live at the Tabernacle”, in follow up to her acclaimed first album “Sprinting Gazelle – Palestinian Songs from the Motherland and the Diaspora”.
Reem has been a regular visitor to Cambridge over the years, and has given concerts and workshops in local schools.
