Kadim “Caesar” Al Sahir is an Iraqi singer, composer, and poet. He has been dubbed the “Caesar of Arabic Song” and “Iraq’s Ambassador to the world.” He is one of the most successful singers in the history of the Arab World.
He performs with an orchestra of twenty to thirty musicians on Arabic percussion, oud, qanun, nay, and a full complement of strings (violin, cello, and bass).
While some of his work makes use of electronic musical sounds, he avoids the use of synthesizers to imitate acoustic instruments. His work frequently features Iraqi folk instruments, rhythms and melodies.
