The Musicians’ Union and the F-List have partnered this Women’s History Month to organise two online discussion panels to explore representation in the music industry from the music industry from the perspectives of the artists.

What the press think
“The British-Egyptian mezzo Camille Maalawy, experienced in Arabic and Sephardic singing styles as well as Western classical music, was a perfect fit for Mother…Maalawy was not only a strong singer, but also an excellent actress who brought a warm humanity to Mother and projected complex emotion even when reacting to a phone screen.”
Caroline Potter, I care if you listen, August 2019 (Silk Moth, El-Turk).

Thank you for visiting my web-site!  I am delighted to be rediscovering life in the north of England after moving to Hull with my husband, and continue to be involved an exciting variety of projects as an animateur, performer and educator.
Please have a look through the following pages to find out a little more about my career and passion for music, which has been an eclectic mix of Arabic and Sephardic song, opera, premieres by contemporary composers, and working in music education across all ages and genres.
