Joseph Malki

Joseph Malki was born in Kamishli 1948. He studied music with the Syriac Scout band where he played Saxophone. His professional musical skills appeared when he played oriental accordion with the musical orchestra of the radio station of Damascus in the 1968.

He composed his first Syriac song “Rhimto dleb warde mzabno” in Kamishli 1965 followed by “T´het Lamfido” and the famous Syriac song and at that time “Grishla idi” (sang by Wadih El Safi) 1969.

Josef Malke studied the film arts in Spain at the beginning of the seventies. He moved to Sweden with the first emigrant groups at that time. In Sweden he was the first Syriac professional composer. In 1975 he composed twelve songs in a cassette form sang by Boutros and Simon Hadrouli and Lena Haffo. This cassette included ”Men bethnahrin Athyono”, “Kthewli Eshmekh” and others. In 1977 he released the first professional Syriac LP ”Azzen Azzen”, sang by Ninib Ablahhad Lahdo. Moreover he released two complete children songs’ cassettes.
