-Kathem al Saher in-depth-
Kathem Jabbar Al Samarai better known by his artistic name as Kathem Al-Saher، is an Iraqi singer، composer and songwriter. 

He has been dubbed the "Caesar of Arabic Song"، and "Iraq's Ambassador to the world".

Kathem has established himself as one of the most successful singers in the history of the Arab World، since the start of his career. Ranging from big romantic ballads to more political work، from pop to Arab classical music.

He performs with an orchestra of twenty to thirty musicians on Arabic percussion، oud، qanun، nay، and a full complement of strings (violin، cello، and bass). While some of his work makes use of electronic musical sounds، he avoids the use of synthesizers to imitate acoustic instruments. 

His work frequently features Iraqi folk instruments، rhythms، and melodies.
