Composer Biography

Hossam Ramzy

Hossam Ramzy was born in Cairo, Egypt and started developing his percussion playing at a young age.  A move to Saudi Arabia led him to join many Bedouin tribes, which gave the young Hossam a rich insight into the cultural origins of Middle Eastern music, which became the inspiration for many of his later rhythmic directions.

In the mid 1970’s Hossam moved to England, and worked with many highly respected jazz musicians like Andy Shepherd and Geoff Williams.  The distinctive sound of Hossam’s playing caught the attention of Peter Gabriel and he performed on his albums ‘Passion’ and later ‘Us’, and recently his latest album to be released in the near future. Hossam has gone on to work with many top musicians including Joan Armatrading and Mari Wilson.  In 1994 Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (ex Led Zeppelin) invited Hossam to bring together a band of Arabian musicians and work on their reunion album ‘No Quarter - Unleaded’ which was awarded a triple platinum. This led to Hossam joining Page and Plant on their historic reunion 1995/96-world tour.  Ever Since Hossam has been extensively touring with various artists, such as Pino Daniele of Italy as well as many of the top class Arabian Singers like Cheb Khaled, Rashid Taha, Faudel and many others.

To date Hossam has released 20 albums, with many of them dedicated to percussion and rhythms of the world.

Hossam has also collaborated on the composing and performing of many award winning film sound tracks like: Stargate, Wings Of A Dove, The Saint, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Stealing Beauty, The Last Temptation Of Christ and has collaborated with a number of Audio Network composers both as a writer and a player.
