Symphonies of the Self: Majeed Marhoon Music Preservation Project

Hasan Hujairi  |  Music  |  2016  |  Bahrain
An archival project to preserve and distribute the musical compositions of late Bahraini maverick composer Majeed Marhoon (1945-2010). Majeed Marhoon was a Bahraini composer, saxophone player and musicologist, most famously known for being a self-taught composer (he had taught himself to compose while serving a 22 years prison sentence for his involvement in a pro-independence group in Bahrain). This project is the third and final stage of Hasan Hujairi's "Symphonies of the Self" which included a concert series and documentary dedicated to Majeed Marhoon.
