Nathem Al Ghazali

Nazem Al Ghazali is a quintessential musical figure in Iraq, as he put a unique spin on the songs he sung. He was the first to use western musical instruments in Iraqi songs, which is illustrated through the colorful, modern flourishes in the room design. These elements act, as a frame to the room, in order to emphasize how innovative and enriching it was to employ these western instruments in Arabic songs. Moreover, Nazem Al Ghazali’s early life was plagued by poverty, as he worked as a foreman in a flour factory. This is highlighted by the splashes of paint on the main wall of the room, which mimic flour stains. Additionally, the bedside table was designed to simulate a flour strainer.
