Georges Lammam


Georges Lammam, of Palestinian descent, born in Beirut, Lebanon is a solo
violinist exemplifying the Arab style of instrumental improvisation. A
recording artist, composer and artistic director for the Georges Lammam
Ensemble, Georges is a featured artist in other musical groups – Ancient
Future, Wobbly World, Shabazz and Pena Pacha Mama Group.

Mr. Lammam, as an artistic emissary brings Arab arts and his cultural
heritage to fore in supporting Palestine – both the culture and the people.
His music has enhanced and supported the work of arts and philanthropic
non-profits in support of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.

His compositions and performance excerpts are included in scores for two
award-winning documentaries: “Occupation 101” and “Tea on the Axis of
Evil”, and he recorded a well-known folkloric debke in a 2016 feature film,
“Wrestling Jerusalem” by Aaron Davidman. Opus Omnia (2017) is the most
recent within a five CD discography and available at Itunes, CDbaby and
Amazon, and a new recording is nearing completion to be available in 2024.
