AHMED SIROUR

A native of Brooklyn, NY and a self-taught keyboardist/pianist with no musical training, Ahmed learned how to play in his early 20s by listening to CDs on his boombox, following along on his keyboard and practicing till he could both duplicate the song then improvise new arrangements. His first gig as a professional musician occurred October 4, 2002. He soon after started his own successful, weekly jam sessions, doing improv of various genres with his band and guests that sat in from around the country. Years later he studied sound engineering, for his Masters degree in Audio Production from the University of Westminster, London (though never having had a Bachelor's degree). His musical skills range from live performance, production, composition, arrangement, writing, recording/mixing/mastering engineering. However, he is also a freelance journalist, graphic designer, photographer, and a great dancer ;)

His style is diverse and covers various genres, so one category can't fully be attributed to him to explain his artistry...except maybe to call it "quality". But why not listen for yourself (proceed to the music links below)...
