Khairat is famous for mastering the piano, but what some people don’t know is that he’s also a wonderful composer. He was born in Alexandria and brought up in a family of musicians. In 1959, he began his career path as a pianist. In 1989, however, he won the Best Musician award by the Egyptian Society for Cinema.


A big variety of music genres left a print on Khairat such as Jazz, Arabic music, blues, Egyptian and European classical and more. He managed to integrate and mix international symphonies with Egyptian music in an expertly manner.



WE SAID THIS: Omar Khairat making music, for charity, to support Egyptian street kids, in London and it cannot get any better than this!


Found in a box of bananas from the Philippines on the River Nile at an early age, Kurt is born to a Filipino mother and an Egyptian father which means emotionally he is completely screwed. Kurt is a bubbling cauldron of masculinity aside from his girly hair, camp voice and passion for One Direction.
