Nabil khemir, composer, guitar player, lute-player and singer

Born in Tunisia, Nabil Khemir has grown up in the metropolis of Tunis with the Egyptian music.

By listening to famous Egyptian musicians of this era such as the great singer Oum Kalthoum, the composer/singer Mohamed Abdelwahab, the singer and lute-player Ferid El Atrach and Riadh Sombati (lute-player and composer of Oum Kalthoum) he pronounced his early words while singing their songs.

At the age of seven, Nabil Khemir, appears for the first time in public to sing. When his brother offers him a lute at the occasion of his ninth birthday, he starts to play this instrument as self-taught.
