Le­banese-Amer­i­can singer-song­writer Mayssa Karaa de­fines a new era of mu­si­cal in­clu­sion. Meld­ing Ara­bic in­flu­ences into Western mu­sic is her forte. She is pop­u­lar for singing the Ara­bic ver­sion of White Rab­bit in the film Amer­i­can Hus­tle, which was nom­i­nated for a Grammy. Mayssa per­formed the song at DIFF in 2013. She is now look­ing to get back to her roots and is keen on shar­ing her knowledge with mu­sic lovers in the Mid­dle East. “This (Berklee) pro­gramme model will be ex­e­cuted us­ing the Berklee In­dia Ex­change model as an ex­am­ple. I’m happy to have Clint by my side through this jour­ney and shar­ing the same vi­sion, bring­ing our net­work of pro­fes­sion­als to the Mid­dle East, and to the UAE,” Mayssa said.
