Compositions & lyrics by Marouf Majidi
MA Rouf plays traditional Middle Eastern music with Afro-centric and Scandinavian jazz influences.
Marouf Majidi was raised surrounded by a rich Middle Eastern heritage, and he learned early on to play the native stringed instruments, the enchantingly dark-sounding tar and tanbour. Majidi’s current songs travel from Kurdish scenes to Arabic and Scandinavian atmospheres.
