Wikipedia - Music of Jordan

 

One of the most important musicians in Jordan are the Faqir family which extends for more than 100 years. Jordan's western radio station, Play 99.6, works towards exposing new local artists, including many western pop singers such as Humam Ammari, Al'a Ayyoub, and Walid Karadsheh. The thriving Indie rock scene was achieved thanks to artists such as Kais Khoury, Ibrahim Baggili, Hani Mitwasi and Yousef Kawar, as well as the Cowboys from Jordan; a band managed by Yousef Kawar himself. Other notable genres in Jordan are Hip Hop; which was popularized through DJ Shadia (Shadia Bseiso) through her regional radio show "The 5th Element" which was the only show in the Middle East to broadcast in three different countries every week (Jordan, Lebanon and Syria) from 2005 to 2008. DJ Shadia had previously opened for global stars such as Akon, 50 Cent, Sean Paul and Massari. Other popular Hip Hop artists include Last Standing Poet and MC Niz-r. As of recent times, Jordan's electronic music scene is rising rapidly within the Jordanian youth, house have become staples in the musical tastes in Jordan. Many raves and underground techno gatherings occur, and electronic music is currently reaching number one status of music genre in Jordan.
