Biography

Nancy Zaabalawi is from Damascus – Syria, a Gemini, who studied Arabic Literature at the University of Damascus before studying the English Language and computer at the American College. She is currently working as an executive secretary at the Syrian International School. Among her hobbies are singing and swimming. She wishes to work in the field of Business. If art were consistent with her beliefs, she would have chosen it without hesitation before anything else.

Nancy maintains, “Art is still a source of shame for girls in the Arab world. The oriental society allows the girl to be a nurse for instance, and to get out of her house in the middle of the night and come back at 7:00 a.m. But the problem begins when the girl, in their opinion, sings for one hour and returns home…”

Nancy’s father plays the guitar, and he is a music teacher and a member of the Artists Syndicate in Syria. As a young girl, she had the talent of memorizing the songs with great speed, and later on, she participated in a huge number of children’s shows in the Syrian Television and other Arab channels. However, she stopped to pursue her studies.

During the summer of each year, Nancy’s family used to travel to Ladikiya to spend the vacation. During their stay in one of the hotels, Nancy used to sing in the events that used to be held daily just for the sake of fun not more…However, she impressed the hotel guests who started asking for her, which encouraged the hotel management to sign a contract with her last year to sing for one whole month, before starting to sing in restaurants and hotels in Damascus.
