Kadim Al Sahir is widely considered as the no.1 Arabic legend of contemporary singing. Throughout his career of over 25 years, he has released around 25 albums, sold over 100 million albums and performed live to millions across the globe.

Kadim has gained numerous artistic awards including the much valued BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards for “Best Middle Eastern/North African Artist” as well as the “Audience Award”, the Jordan Award for “The Best Arabic Artist”, and the Murex d’or for “Lifetime Achievement Legend Award”. His song “Ana Wa Leila” was ranked 6th among the ten best songs in the world on BBC, and was the only Arabic song listed. He performed at many prestigious international venues including the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Circus Maximus in Rome, the Beiteddine Art Festival in Lebanon and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  A genuine humanitarian, his many recognitions include the“First Class Accolades Honour” by The Arab League, and an apointment as “Ambassador of Goodwill” by the UNICEF

Born in Iraq in 1957, to a simple family, Kadim grew up fueled by passion for creativity. After exploring various forms of art including sculpting, painting, drawing, fashion and poetry, he decided to specialize in music. He became a multi-instrumentalist composer and popularized the Iraqi song far beyond the country’s borders during very challenging times of war, with hits like “Ubart il shat”, “Salamtak beed Allah”, and “Baghdad Kathora Al Hadeeth”.
