We bring the audience an unforgettable World Music experience!
"For many years I have been involved in bringing together master musicians from around the world for performances and recordings. I consider myself very lucky to have some amazingly talented musicians perform and record my music! That for me has been a great gift and I would like to share it with everyone. Most of the music we perform is original material written by myself and in some cases other members of the band. All the music is inspired by traditional music from India, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Africa. From time to time, we also include traditional pieces in our performances." Emam

We will create the perfect ensemble to fit your needs,
based on your venue requirements and your budget:
From a World Music Trio to a full ensemble of world class musicians.

Emam & Friends performed for the concert series "Fridays at the Frick" (Pittsburgh, PA).
Here's what the co-producers of the series had to say about our performance:

"What an incredible way to begin our 15th season of First Fridays at the Frick. Our heartfelt thanks to each one of you for your magnificent music and outstanding talent. What a fantastic gift to give our audience. We hope that you enjoyed yourself as much as our guests and we did. It was a perfect night filled with extraordinary song. We enjoyed meeting you and feeling your beautiful energies. One of the great joys of our positions at the Frick Art & Historical Center is working with talented, creative people like you. Thank you once again for a most amazing evening."
Margaret A. McLean and Caito Amorose Co-Producers, Fridays at the Frick
