Chalf Hassan is a young musician and singer from Morocco (Casablanca). He was born into a religious family, was steeped in Koranic culture but also became adept at a range of local percussion and stringed instruments. His music is based on traditional folk and classical songs given a distinctively personal treatment which he has developed since he first came to London in 1984. He played throughout Europe with Arab, Western and African Musicians for years before crossing cultural barriers to create his Arab-Spanish fusion.
With his lute, drums and an ever changing line-up of musicians Hassan started his carrier playing with groups and performed for theatre companies all over Morocco. He was also a member of professional orchestras and has formed a couple of groups that were named after him.
He is expert at playing many different and complex rhythms and music. For this he was invited by Hossam Ramzy to join Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (ex Led Zeppelin) on their historic reunion 1995/96 World tour.
