Nathalie Bichara https://www.instagram.com/nathalie.bichara/ Nathalie Bichara is a singer and performing artist based in Cairo. She started taking professional vocal training under Dr. Neveen Allouba at the age of 15 when she joined a German global Music competition called ""Jugend Musiziert"". She's traveled for several rounds around Europe including Istanbul, Rome, and Germany to compete in it and won third place in the final round in Nuremberg, Germany. Following her passion she majored in Performance at the American University in Cairo where she learned and performed both Arab and classical western music. She was awarded the Valerie Farag Music Award for outstanding musical achievements upon graduating from AUC. Since then Nathalie has been focused on exploring singing a variety of different genres including jazz, bossa nova, pop, and indie with her band. She plans to create an album that combines all that she's picked up in her humble history as an artist, and to find a sound that reflects who she is as a person to be able to present to the world.
