Music of Bahrain


Bahrain is a small island and is part of the pan-Gulf khaleeji folk traditions. It is also known (alongside Kuwait) for sawt music, a bluesy genre influenced by African, Indian and Persian music. Sultan Hamid, Ali Bahar and Khalid al Shaikh (a singer and oud player) are among the most popular musicians from Bahrain.[1] Bahraini hip hop is also an important part of the music of Bahrain, which has produced performers like DJ Outlaw.

The band Bahraini Osiris has achieved some international renown since the 1980s with its style of progressive rock, most recently including elements of Bahraini folk music.[2]

There is also a strong heavy metal and Hard Rock community in the country, with many groups writing and performing original and cover songs. Noteworthy bands in the history of the community include Hard Rock outfit Dive, influential thrash metal band Motör Militia, a metal band Delusions of Grandeur and Progressive Rock/heavy metal band Avatar.

In addition, there are a number of groups whose pages can be found on MySpace--notably, black metal band Smouldering In Forgotten, comedy metal band Screw me sideways, melodic metalcore band Eternal Calamity, melodic death metal band An Undergoing Tragedy, alternative emotional metal band Severd, Doom Death Melodic metal band Doomshed and hardcore/thrash metal band Path Under Calm. There are also a handful of other bands in the country, such as Backtorn, Illusions, and Broken Skulls.

Modern music institutions in Bahrain include the Bahrain Music Institute, the Bahrain Orchestra and the Classical Institute of Music. The Bahraini male-only pearl diving tradition is known for the songs called fidjeri.[3]

Liwa is a type of music and dance performed mainly in communities which contain descendants of East Africans.

Hind is a popular new singer from Bahrain who just released her new albu called "El Ghroub" on the Rotana label
