Macadi Nahhas, a leading voice among the young Jordanian artists, has a sparkling talent, distinguished voice, and an astonishing presence. With her own special style, she revived music and songs from the Middle Eastern heritage and folklore that were long forgotten.

Born in Amman in 1977, she obtained a Diploma in music from the Music Conservatory of Beirut.

Her music career began after her first live performance at the Jerash Festival in 1997. Since then, Macadi has been active in the music scene, where she performed at various cultural festivals and events in Jordan, Lebanon, Tunisia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Denmark.

In 2001, she recorded and produced her debut album “Kan Ya Ma Kan,” which was released later in 2003 due to the War in Iraq. The project was from the Iraqi Heritage with the participation of the Iraqi National Orchestra led by the well-respected and known conductor, Mohammad Amin Izzat.

Her second album, KhilKhal, was released at the end of 2006.

The project combined musicians from Lebanon and Jordan, introducing folklore from the Middle East with a contemporary twist, mixing Arabic tunes with Cuban and Latin Jazz.

The album was produced by Macadi and was recorded in Jordan.

The third album, titled “Jowwa Al Ahlam,” which was addressed mainly to children and families, was released in 2009. The CD received various positive critiques, especially for its moral and constructive messages and values.

Macadi released in July 2012 the album “Ila Salem,” which is a compilation of her best songs. She pays tribute in this album to her late father, Salem, who had been her first supporter and fan when she first started her singing career.

Macadi’s latest album, “Nour,” is the pinnacle of her musical career. The album was recorded at the end of 2013 and early 2014 and embarks on a new era in Macadi’s artistic career, where she wrote, composed, and arranged most of the songs on the album. The album is claiming high reviews and critics in the artistic scene. The album was mastered at Abbey Road Studios and was produced by Maqam Productions.

Macadi recorded several jingles for many TV and radio programs. She was hosted on different TV and radio programs and talk shows; “Khalik Bel Bait” – Beirut, “El Dar Darkom” – Tunisia, “Yawm Jadid” and “Yese’d Sabahak” – Jordan, and Dubai TV.
