The field of music is vast and has various subsets and processes that take place behind the scenes and it is only then that you get to see your favorite songs and their music videos onscreen. Among the many processes that contribute to the formation of the pyramid of a song, perhaps one of the most important ones is music arrangement. To stress on exactly how important musical arrangement is, you can simply say that music arrangement can make or break a song. It is a seemingly simple, yet highly intricate and complex process that requires great precision and an ear for discerning what sounds work and what don’t, thereby making your favorite songs into timeless masterpieces.

Karam Rassam is one of the amazing people in the music industry who have been effortlessly excelling at the art of music arrangement since they set foot into the industry. Karam has been a music producer since 2001 and served as the General Manager of Aghanina TV, a live TV channel from Jordan, for the period 2007 to 2017. Established in Iraq, he has been arranging music for more than a hundred and fifty songs for Iraqi music artists, including but not limited to: Haitham Yousif, Kais Hisham, Hatim Al Iraqi, Mohammed Al Faris, Mohammed Abdul Gabar, Habib Ali, Salam Hassan, Modafar Al Ameer, and others.

Growing up, Karam always had an eminent love for music. He was artistically inclined, and could discern tones and sounds well, leading to him developing a profound interest in the subject.
