Born in the UAE, Sarah Shawky started singing from the age of seven and participated in school talent concerts. After graduating from the American University with a degree in interior design, she embarked on a journey in music at Bait Al Oud in 2016. At the school, Shawky learnt the principles of Arabic music and the authentic art form from Dr Fathulla Ahmed, who gave her dedicated attention inspired by his experience. This is a gift to be treasured by anyone who wants to become a musician. Ms Shawky’s journey at Bait Al Oud coincided with her interest in human development and energy science. She therefore decided to research the relationship between music and human energy, and the impact of music on the human soul and body. Shawky presented her research under the name of Bait Al Oud, under the supervision of Dr Fathulla Ahmed, so that it could be a useful resource for anyone interested in music and for other people who listen to music in their daily lives.
