Nada in deep contemplation
“I am not a writer, a poet nor a painter since I cannot artfully arrange my phrases or images so as to give light and shade; nor can I even express my thoughts by gesture and pantomime, for I am no dancer. But I can do so in sounds. I am a musician.”
-W.A. Mozart

In the year 2020, I plan to work mainly on writing my life’s story. It will be like taking a sabbatical year from performing, although I have a few performances and recordings on my calendar.

It will also be a time of reflection and planning, meditating on my accomplishments and my life, and looking for more ways to share with others everything I am as a musician.

“The audience is you: bringing music alive for everyone”

“Nada has the modesty of the greatest. One can no longer find the interpreter, only the music, and that reverence of a hall left absolutely breathless”
– An Nahar (the leading Arabic-language daily newspaper, published in Lebanon)
