Born in Iraq, city of Kirkuk, graduated high school in the same city, then attended college at university of Mousol (Ninevah), just before gratuation, I migrated to US through Greece in 1979-1980. Influenced by my older brother Ninos who played saxsaphone, and sang in the Assyrian National Club Band. Singing was always on my mind and in my heart, performing in small family gatherings in Kirkuk and while in college with friends was how it all started. My first party was in AAA of Chicago in summer of 1989. In i992 I released my first albume titled "Khoolma" so far I have release 3 albums and currently I'm working on my forth one due to release in 2008 along with several joint projects with othe fellow singers.
