Mais Harb

A Syrian singer, born in the village of Al-Mujimer in the As-Suwayda governorate, located in southern Syria.
Her passion and love for singing began at a young age, when she was brought up on folk songs and the songs of Mrs. Fairouz.
She worked with several international and Syrian bands, where she presented many concerts on Syrian theaters and other Arab and international theaters.
Her studies

began with training her voice on the fundamentals of correct singing since 2000 by Russian operatic singing experts who teach at the Higher Institute of Music in Damascus, until she began her studies at the Higher Institute of Music with a specialization in oriental singing in 2003, during which she studied singing for five years under the guidance of singing teacher Lubana al-Kuntar.
During her studies, she focused on difficult lyrical forms and rare songs that were sung very little due to their difficulty, and for which it was also difficult to find musical notation, which always forced her to write down the musical notes herself.

In her graduation project, she obtained the highest score since the establishment of the Institute in her major, which is 97 out of 100 when she performed the role of “I Wasted the Future of My Life by Zakaria Ahmed – and the song Raq Al-Habib by Al-Qasabji” and it is known that they are among the most difficult things to compose in Arabic music.


In 2008, she formed her own band, the Sayed Darwish Band, led by musician Rashid Helal.
She participated in the theater as an actress and singer by starring in the play “Waiting for the Barbarians” directed by Walid Al-Quwatli, in which she played the role of a singer who narrates the events of the show, and she was the one who composed the written text for singing, and the play was shown in both Egypt and Syria in 2010.
And in a major role in the play “The Way to the Sun”, which was presented at the Opera House in Damascus 2015.
She also participated as a singer and actress in the cinema in the movie “Long or Long Is Our Way” directed by the Syrian film director, Raymond Boutros.
She released her first album, “Khitan al-Shams,” from the Syrian Opera House in September 2016, which includes seven songs and a piece of music, in which she collaborated with a number of Syrian academic musicians and poets.
She also signed a cooperation contract with Universal, which in turn published and marketed the album.
She presented many Syrian series badges to many Syrian composers, in addition to many contributions to the soundtracks of many series.
