Soul searching: Emirati singer features in two US dramas

As soul singer Hamdan Al Abri’s career goes from strength to strength, reveals how the musician’s popularity in the US has risen since featuring in two hit TV dramas

Emirati soul singer Hamdan Al Abri has seen his reputation grow in the US recently after his music was featured in two hit drama series.

Al Abri's song Re-Birth was played on CSI late last year, while his latest hit single Falling (video above) has aired on Sarah Michelle Gellar's new series, Ringer.

After signing his EP to the Greater Goods Co. licensing company in Toronto and releasing the record in October last year, Al Abri’s manager describes how “the track Re-Birth was put on CSI so fast that we didn't even find out until after the airing of the show.”

Al Abri’s talents have been recognised globally, and licensing his music has provided a new avenue for spreading his music across different mediums – with fruitful results.
