MAYSSA: A RETURN TO HER ROOTS
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.
