Biography

Khaled’s music (pronounced Ka-lid) is the definition of East meets West. Khaled seamlessly fuses different musical genres into soulful arrangements and intricate rhythms. This unique style and sound, now dubbed Alternative World Fusion, brings together the music of cultures from the Middle East, the Mediterranean and the Americas.

The latest album, “The Rabbit Hole”, proves Alternative World Fusion can be dark, sexy and Rock ‘n Roll when it’s created by musicians with the right amount of skill and lyrical depth. Khaled Dajani is from the Middle East and moved to the U.S.A. at the age of 16. On his path, he developed a unique approach to guitar playing and a keen sense for different songwriting styles. The result is a creative and uncompromising listening experience.

Khaled is the winner of the Best Male Solo Award at the 2011 Hoboken Music Awards*. “The Rabbit Hole” was also nominated for the Outstanding Album Award at the 2010 Hoboken Music Awards**, and NJ.com named it one of Northern New Jersey’s best albums of 2010*** calling it, “…one of the most engaging and eclectic local releases of the year…the intricacy and passion of [Khaled’s] guitar transcends language and culture and more than stands on its own…creating a freewheeling mix of love songs and instrumentals that truly earns the title ‘world music.’”

Welcome to Alternative World Fusion.
