Ahmed Nazmi is a bass player/Composer/Producer whose sound draws its unique character from his early interest in playing Egyptian traditional music on varied instruments and exploring music from other cultures.

His New album Shams, funded by the Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC), is a dynamic and tasteful blend of Egyptian composition with jazz. Though the album is defined by Nazmi's emotive and vibrant bass, the music is flushed out with a talented and eclectic array of international instrumentalists: piano, guitar, nay, qanun, oud, accordion, mizmar, violin, percussion and drums swell into each other in percussive, subtle, and beautiful Oriental jazz. It consists of nine tracks, linked together by the unifying concept of the album, born of a challenge that Nazmi faced. As a composer, he struggled with wanting to create and play melody, but as a bassist, he needed to support. "How can I reinvent the use of my instrument in this kind of music, and at the same time sustain a seamless movement in the melodies?" he asks in the album's press release.
