AM Management & Rima Events in association with The Peace and Prosperity Trust are proud to present Omar Kamal performing for one night only at Cadogan Hall.
Omar Kamal is a Palestinian singer/composer from the city of Nablus. His multi-cultural influences have given him a rich taste in music ranging from Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson to Arabic greats such as Mohammed Abdel Wahab, Fairouz, and even modern trendsetters like The Weeknd.
Omar sings a variety of genres in a number of languages, plays his own instrument, and composes his own music. All these components make Omar one of the most authentic and open artists to emerge from the region in years. He is always looking to add new sounds and elements to his music and experiment with his sound. Work on Omar’s debut album began in early 2015 with Grammy-winning producer Dave Pierce (Michael Bublé, The Frank Sinatra Estate) and legendary producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Jon Bon Jovi, Aerosmith) with a number of exciting international collaborations (Pedro Eustache, Human Nature) and some of the greatest session players who have worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, and Sammy Davies Jr. Recording of the album took place in London, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Vancouver, but most importantly the prestigious Capitol Studios in Hollywood. The album was finally co-mixed by Bob Rock and multi-Grammy winner Al Schmitt (Frank Sinatra, Quincy Jones, Barbra Streisand) and was released end of 2016.
Expect big things from Omar Kamal.

The Peace and Prosperity Trust is a UK registered charity, whose Royal Patron is HRH The Duke of Gloucester. It was established in 1995 by Founding Trustee Rajai Khouri with the help of a group of Arab, European and American personalities. Trustees and advisors include HRH Princess Alia Bint Al Hussain of Jordan (Honorary Chairman), Mr George Asseily, Mr Peter Brightman, Mrs Leila Buheiry, Mrs Latifa Kosta, Mr Nabil Naaman, Mr Antoine Mattar, Mr Dennis O’ Neill and Mrs Tina Ruta.
The Trust has produced many concerts in London in which its young artists have performed, last of which were at Cadogan Hall, Kensington Palace and the Savoy Hotel. In December 2016, young artists from London and Beirut, together with Toby Purser, the Trust’s Artistic Director and conductor, participated in the Trust’s Christmas concert with the Beirut Chants Festival and American University of Beirut 150th Anniversary celebrations to promote peace in the Middle East, and also to bring the gift of music to Syrian refugee children in a special outreach concert held in collaboration with the Kayany Foundation. During that concert the Trust distributed musical instruments to the children, giving them the opportunity to make music during their school day.
