About the Artist

Nai Barghouti is a Palestinian singer, composer and flute player. At the age of 14, she launched her professional singing career and completed her studies in classical flute performance at the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music in Palestine, where she discovered a passion for composition.

Four of her earliest flute solo compositions have become part of the flute curriculum at the International Institute of Iberian Music in Valencia, Spain. In 2013, she sang and played the flute at the United Nations headquarters in New York at the commemoration of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. In 2017, Barghouti went on her first independent five-city tour in the United Kingdom, where she presented both original material and arrangements of classic Arabic repertoire with an “Arabic-Jazz” sound.

Most recently, she played the leading role of Layla in Orfeo and Majnun, a work that Le Monde called the new face of opera in the 21st century. Barghouti studied for two years at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, and is currently pursuing studies in jazz performance at Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where she is exploring the relationship between classical Arabic singing (tarab) and jazz.
