Fez – Badr Rami, a Moroccan-Syrian musical artist, performed at the Fez Festival for the fifth time and held a press conference to discuss his work afterwards.
According to his father, Rami has been talented since a very young age. His family was always passionate abut music and art and at just three years old, he was able to play the Derbouka (a Moroccan drum).
While growing up in Casablanca, he performed and participated in celebrations and parties, though he didn’t partake in singing contests. His father is a maestro of a band and his mother is a famous doctor.
After he graduated high school, Rami performed in the Festival of Arab Music and then went on to receive a degree in marketing and administrative management. The musician says he looks up to other artists such as Sabah Fakhri and Oum Kalthoum. He believes Morocco is a fertile land for artists to flourish and he is very passionate and proud of the culture and history of his country.
Despite his upbringing and fan base, he also has an audience outside of the Arab world. Rami has performed in places such at the Lillie Opera House in France as well as the United States.
Rami plans to release a new album by the end of this year.
