Hesham Nazih is an Egyptian composer best known for his distinguished style that interweaves authentic melodies with contemporary music. Nazih has built a 20+ year artistic career and has under his belt more than 40 award-winning soundtracks of blockbuster films that dominated the Egyptian box office and achieved critical acclaims such as Snakes and Ladders, Ibrahim Labyad, The Blue Elephant I and II, Sons of Rizk I and II, and The Treasure I and II. His TV hits include Friendly Fire, The Seven Commandments, The Covenant, and Shahid’s Every Week Has A Friday. In addition to an impressive repertoire, Hesham has also received a plethora of “Best Music” awards for many of his works. And in November of 2021, he was honored by the prestigious Arab Music Festival in its 30th edition in recognition of his musical career and for the excellent work he did composing the accompanying music for The Pharaohs’ Golden Parade.

Hesham’s scores were recorded at some of the world’s best studios including Abbey Road in London, Smecky Music Studios in Prague, and Synchron Stage Vienna. Most recently, Nazih was also featured in an in-conversation alongside the two-time Academy Award Winner A.R Rahman during the events of Cairo Industry Days of Cairo International Film Festival, the same festival where he previously received the honorary Faten Hamama Excellence Award, marking the first composer to ever receive this award. Recently, Hesham worked on the Marvel series Moon Knight which premiered on March 30th, 2022 on Disney+.
