About Elias Lammam
Recognized as a child prodigy by the age of 12, Elias Lammam began his professional performing career in Lebanon at the age of 13, performing on the micro-tonal accordion from his early teens until his mid 30's throughout the Middle East and Europe with many of the most popular and highly respected Arab musicians of the 20th century, including one of Oum Kholtoum's original drummers, popular singers Rageb Aleme, the late Wadi el Safi, George Wasouf, Ghassan Saliba, Joseph Noumnoum, and popular Egyptian Shaabi singer Ahmed Adewaya.  He completed his music studies at the Lebanese Music Conservatory, majoring in voice and composition, and was the staff composer/arranger for Dubai TV for many years before returning to Lebanon to open his own nightclub.  Since immigrating to the U.S. in 1998, he has accompanied various Arab singers on tour in the U.S., including Asala Nasri in 2011, and performed at many world music and accordion festivals. He currently teaches and performs regularly in Santa Cruz and at special events throughout the U.S.  

"Elias Lammam is a one of a kind musician. Very talented. He is the best that I have ever heard. Amazing accordion player and singer." Naser Musa, Recording Artist

Elias Lammam is ... literally one of the best accordionists in the world. When Ivan Milev first saw Elias play, he kissed his fingers. When Abu Seoud first saw Elias play, he announced, "You are the new Abu Seoud!" I am told this is as impressive as it sounds."

Superstar singer Asala Nasri declared during a 2011 concert in Los Angeles, after his improvised accordion solo brought her to tears, "that is the best solo I've ever heard!"
