About Omar Khairat Omar Khairat (Arabic: عمر خيرت; also spelled Omar Khayrat) is an Egyptian musician. He was born in Cairo in 1949 and belongs to an artistic family. His uncle the composer Abu Bakr Khairat, was the founder of the Egyptian Conservatory institution and was its first dean. In 1959, Khairat joined the Conservatory (Cairo Conservatoire) and studied piano and musical theory. After graduating, he continued his studies at Trinity College of Music in London. In parallel, he became involved in international popular music and jazz and played the drums for one of the top bands in Egypt, Les Petits Chats. This experience added another dimension to his musical influences. After receiving his degrees in piano and musical theory, he started composing music for the Egyptian Cinema, Television, and Theatre. In addition, he wrote music for Egyptian Ballet. His music was influenced by Arabic and European classical music, Egyptian and African traditional music and also, jazz, pop and blues. What makes his music different is his way of combining western and eastern musical instruments. His career as a pianist began in 1979, when his various works started to gain recognition from both listeners and critics. His first major work was the musical score for the very popular movie, "The Night of Fatima's Arrest". The music of that movie was his first hit and it was widely loved by the public. It was the first time in the music industry of Egypt to have a movie score be reproduced as an audio cassette, which became a milestone in the middle eastern music industry as whole. Besides his compositions, he rearranged and performed with his orchestra several music for an older famous Egyptian composer,Mohammed Abdel Wahab
