Amir Ali is born in Meknes Morocco where he studied music for 8 years. His studies included 8 years of music theory and classical violin, Arabic music theory and oud. He started composing and writing music at age 15 and became soloist of a 30 piece orchestra at age 17. He left Morocco at a young age to settle in the USA, which he has called his second home for 18 years.
Ali wanted to expand his musical career, so he started studying Jazz, Funk, American Pop, Blues, R&B and Hip Hop. He recorded for Sony Music, Warner Brothers, Crescent Moon Studios and Disney.
Amir Ali has toured the world and played with famous musicians, such as Abboud Abdel Al, Haj Younes, Ahmad Doughane, and many more. He is now releasing his first solo album titled One World. The album features all original cuts with an amazing fusion of Arabic melodies and lyrics combined with both World Beat and Hip-Hop rhythms. It’s unlike anything else on the market.
Amir Ali has been representing Morocco at the Moroccan Pavilion for the past 18 years, and has formed his new band Morockin in 1999. The band plays what Ali calls “Moroccan Contemporary Music.”
