Description
SHAAM is a group that came together in late 1997 seeking to present and re-interpret traditional Islamic songs known as nasheeds -- a genre that originates from the time of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him).

These spiritually uplifting songs seek to praise God and His final Messenger. They are distinguished by their emphasis upon vocals and percussion only, with stringed and wind instruments avoided in deference to orthodox Islamic precepts. It is this style of song that SHAAM has mastered over the past few years.

The group, composed of Haroon Bashir, Mahmood Norris, Yasin Alam, and Imran Bashir -- all young men from Birmingham, England -- took their name from the place that had inspired them: Syria (in Arabic, Shaam). All had at some stage or another studied and visited Damascus and had come into contact with groups who would sing timeless nasheeds with moving lyrics, accompanied by the rousing and intricate beating of the duff, a traditional one-sided hand drum. Though having been taught this art by some of the best teachers (in addition to their studies in more formal Islamic subjects), the idea of forming their own group was encouraged by learned people, family, and friends, who were impressed at their grasp of this unique Arabic art. So what started out as a tentative foursome gradually evolved into a confident, polished quartet. It was therefore no surprise to see, in a short period of time, how popular SHAAM became as a live act touring around the British Isles, performing at weddings, celebrations, and events.
