Egyptian Composer and Pianist Omar Khairat

Omar Khairat (Arabic: عمر خيرت; also spelled Omar Khayrat) is an Egyptian musician. He was born in Cairo in 1949 and belongs to an artistic family. His uncle the composer Abu Bakr Khairat, was the founder of the Egyptian Conservatory institution and was its first dean. In 1959, Khairat joined the Conservatory (Cairo Conservatoire) and studied piano and musical theory. After graduating, he continued his studies at Trinity College of Music in London.[1] In parallel, he became involved in international popular music and jazz and played the drums for one of the top bands in Egypt, Les Petits Chats. This experience added another dimension to his musical influences.

After receiving his degrees in piano and musical theory, he started composing music for the Egyptian Cinema, Television, and Theatre. In addition, he wrote music for Egyptian Ballet. His music was influenced by Arabic and European classical music, Egyptian and African traditional music and also, jazz, pop and blues. What makes his music different is his way of combining western and eastern musical instruments.

His career as a pianist began in 1979, when his various works started to gain recognition from both listeners and critics. His first major work was the musical score for the very popular movie, "The Night of Fatima's Arrest". The music of that movie was his first hit and it was widely loved by the public.[2] It was the first time in the music industry of Egypt to have a movie score be reproduced as an audio cassette, which became a milestone in the middle eastern music industry as whole.

Besides his compositions, he rearranged and performed with his orchestra several music for an older famous Egyptian composer,Mohammed Abdel Wahab
Omar Khairat (2008)

Examples of the rearranged music:

* Emta hanebtedy el Hekaya
* Enta Omry
* El Hob Gamil
* Emta El Zaman yesmah ya gamil
* Men Gheirl Leh

Music I always liked because it is the only language all people understand irrespective of race, culture and creed.Music is not related or connected to nations and their borders, neither geographical nor political. Music is the language of life, love and peace. That is why I adapt the music of the world in my music.If the world succeed to speak one language, misunderstanding between people would diminish. I like to be at the seashore and share far away, thinking about what is happening at the other side of the sea, thinking about the what is happening at the other side of the see, thinking about the other nations around and I want to communicate by means of music. I turn to my piano where sea and music help me to overcome my sorrow and help me to understand the other. Then I become the human being I want to be.
I sincerly hope my music can and will be a step forward to a world where people will have freedom to open up and understand and respect each other.
