Strings of Success


Bahraini composer Zaina Arekat, known for her musical prowess even whilst suffering from a rare type of muscular dystrophy and is blind, has collaborated with the lead guitarist of an international symphonic metal band to release a new space-style single.

The instrumental, Into the Void, was composed and created by the 30-year-old Bahraini, who has Palestinian roots; with a guitar solo composed and performed by Ruud Jolie, a Dutch musician from Within Temptation.

“I initially composed this track with no collaboration in mind, but was somehow dissatisfied with the guitar solo bit I recorded,” said Zaina, from Budaiya. “Later on, I came across an Instagram post by Ruud, the guitar player of my favourite band and one of my favourite musicians. In the post, he said that he was open for collaborations with other artists so I took the plunge and emailed him. He agreed to collaborate with me and recorded an awesome electric guitar solo.
