Nawar Alnaddaf


Nawar Alnaddaf (Syria)

Arabic blue notes meet the Norwegian wilderness.

In the music of Nawar Alnaddaf, Arabic tonality meets other musical traditions. The singer and oud player comes from Syria. She has a bachelor's degree in Arabic music and is now studying at the Norwegian Academy of Music. There she explores the similarity between the use of microtonality in Arabic maqam music and different western musical expressions. Alnaddaf has been part of several collaborations in Norway, such as the project Meelodi with Ole André Farstad and Per Jørgensen, which played at the Førde Festival in 2021. In 2023, she returned to Førde with her own project.

Nawar Alnaddaf - "Like a dream" on Ancient Lyre/Nyatiti

She brings her own band to Oslo World. Alnaddaf composes music in the intersection between Arabic tonality, modern expressions and improvisation. She also arranges music from Arab folk music, in addition to Norwegian folk tunes. Her excellent band draws power from jazz, Norwegian and Arabic music and breathes life and warmth into her music. The meetings between jazz and various forms of traditional music have played a major part on the new, young Norwegian scene in the last ten years. At Kafé Hærverk, we meet a new, distinct voice in this landscape.
