Biography

Hamza Namira (Arabic: حمزة نمرة) is an Egyptian musician, born in Saudi Arabia in 1980. Hamza started to develop an interest in music during his teens, and he set about learning the guitar, keyboard, and ‘Oud. He composed his first songs and succeeded in getting a few like-minded friends together and established the band “Nomaira.”

His main musical influence is Nabil Al Bakly - a relatively unknown musician, whose group Hamza joined from 2000 to 2001. This experience greatly influenced the way music affected him and in a sense taught him the real meaning of music. Other influences in Hamza’s music include Middle Eastern, Egyptian traditional and folk music. He also likes light rock, jazz and Latin music. He admits that describing his music is a difficult task and that he’d rather leave it up to his audience to decide. In fact, Hamza loathes categorization and classification as his main goal from music is to express the way he thinks and feels towards life. He has experienced - like all the youth in his generation - the worries, conflicts, issues, and ideas that the modern world bombards us with from every direction, and he is just trying to express them through his songs.

In 2007, Hamza signed with Awakening Records, the British Record label that launched the careers of Sami Yusuf, Mesut Kurtis and Maher Zain among others. Hamza’s debut album “Ehlam Ma’aya” (Dream With Me). Relesed in 2008 was groundbreaking in the subjects it tackled and the musical genres it brought together. The album became an instant hit especially with university students, and reached the Top 10 list in Virgin Megastore and remained there for many weeks.

    I removed the Arabic-text bio (which is against Last.fm rules); normally I'd replace it with an English bio, but there's no indication as to who this is.
