Album Notes
Ornina by Zaher Assaf
Music for oriental dance by Zaher Assaf

About Zaher
The musician, singer and composer Zaher Assaf comes from Damascus / Syria. He studied classical and oriental music at the Music Academy of the Syrian University in Damascus with the most renowned teachers. During his studies he was a member of the Syrian National Philharmonic Orchestra and other ensembles. Among others, he also worked with many famous artists in the Arabic world – like Wadiaa el Safy.
Beside this, he established his reputation as a music teacher for violin, oud (Arabic lute) and percussion. All these experiences made him an extraordinary musician, singer and composer.
Since 1994, Zaher Assaf has lived in Europe. After originally moving to Germany, he has lived in Switzerland for the past years. In countless appearances he has played both as a solo artist and with various ensembles, such as his own group « El Farah » (Arabic for joy). In Zurich he is active as a music teacher for violin, oud and percussion. His passion for music drives him constantly to try out new things and to create new musical compositions.

Ornina is Zaher Assaf’s second album for oriental dance. The origin of the name Ornina is from the Aramean goddess of music and represents in a wonderful way the origin of Zaher bein an Aramean christian from Damscus.
For Ornina Zaher worked again with the best musicians from his country of origin. Almost all the songs are penned by Zaher.
Besides his own compositions Zaher registered pieces that are dear to his heart but with a completely new arrangement and interpretation. This album is a delicacy for everyone who likes belly dancing.
This CD is for the people in Syria. May peace return very soon to this wonderful country. Many thanks to all those who have worked for this CD and who helped me. Special thanks are going to my Syrian music colleagues who worked under difficult circumstances and gave their best.
