Sherine Tohamy
شيرين تهامى


Sherine Tohamy was born and raised in Egypt. She was introduced to the oud via a concert given by Naseer Shamma, and this led to her enrolling at Shamma's 'House of Oud in Cairo. She became the first female student to graduate from the institute, after which she spent two years teaching oud at the Hefny Institute of Arab Music. In 2002 she took up a teaching position at the House of Oud, first in Cairo and then from 2009 in the Abu Dhabi branch of the institute. As well as performing as a solo artist, she has also been part of a trio featuring Nihad AlSayed and Hazem Shaheen, as well as an all-female oud group Najmaat. Most of her concerts have been in the Arab world, although she has also performed in France and participated in the 1st Gambus Conference and Festival in Malaysia.
