Adam Maalouf is a Lebanese-American percussionist and composer. After graduating with a BA from Eastman School of Music and MM in Music Business from Berklee School of Music, Maalouf moved to NYC to pursue a freelance percussion career. Since 2013, Maalouf has produced four albums featuring solo work and numerous collaborations with musicians from India, Persia, the Middle East and the United States.
As an educator, Maalouf regularly hosts educational workshops in NY, Miami, Los Angeles and other U.S. cities. As a performer, Maalouf has shared the stage with the Brooklyn Raga Massive, the Asheville Percussion Festival, Pink Martini, Ensemble Signal, Grammy-nominated violinist Layale Chaker and the National Arab Orchestra to name a few.
Maalouf’s influences have helped create a distinctly unique creative voice by working with traditional instruments in a contemporary fashion, and actively seeks the untraveled road for handpan collaborative projects.
