Welcome to Camille’s website

“She sang with passionate intensity, drawing out the power and grief of one reliving from the other side a history that repeats itself….the image of her kneeling to the words of the final spoken lines remained with me long afterwards… It was one of the most remarkable musical experiences of my year.” George K. Haggett, Tempo Journal, December 2019 (Silk Moth, El-Turk).

“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 am extremely excited to be already involved with several projects both as an animateur and performer.
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.

STOP PRESS Camille recently performed Silk Moth at Grimeborn 2019 from 9-11 August at London’s Arcola Theatre to great acclaim!
