A Brief Biography of the Late George Homeh

Sydney – Australia:

George Homeh was born in Walto, Tel-Nastri in Syria in 1954. He was the second child of 5 born to the Late Homeh (his father) and the Late Tauris (his mother). He spent his early years in Syria where he completed his primary and high school studies.

Around 1972/73 when a radio program in Assyrian was launched in Baghdad the group became regular listeners. When in 1973 a call was put to air by the program for singers with talent to contribute to the program, George and Edwar Mousa with the others organised a recording session at home and recorded a number of songs and sent the tape to Baghdad. Many of those songs were picked up and featured on the Assyrian program.
In early 1970's he developed more interest in music and became involved with a group of young men among them was the well known Edwar Mousa to pursue their interest in music and singing.

In 1987 George released his first Australian produced album which possibly established his singing and musical career. His discography is as follows (with uneven calling of volume numbers):

1- 1974?! in Syria (George with Edwar Mousa) we think George didn’t sing only played music). 

2- 1985 Vol 1 Recorded in Syria printed and released in Australia (recorded 1983 in syria).

3- 1987 Vol 1 In Australia

4- 1989 Vol 2 In Australia

5- 1991 Vol 3 In Australia

6- 1993 Vol 4 In Australia

7- 2000 Vol 5 In Australia

In 1991 he starred together with singer Juliana Jendo in a movie titled Wardeh Deesheh which was written, produced and directed by his brother John Homeh, this movie was very well received by Assyrian audiences everywhere.

Prior to his death, George had been working in his own studio for many months on a new album. He had a great deal of work completed.

George was talented in playing a number of instruments, the violin was his favourite but he also played Oud, Guitar and the Piano. His musical talent was always in demand by other Assyrian performers. He played on albums for such singers like Geliana Esho, Carmelan Zodo, Homeh Lazar and many more. During his career he also had tours to perform in the U.S.A., Canada and a number of countries in Europe culminating with his final tour of 2009 to Bet-Nahrain before he passed away.

The Late George Homeh passed away on Tuesday November 16, 2010 in Sydney.
