Kamal

Kamal

Real Name:
Martin Oberschelp
Profile:
As a classical guitarist studying at the Robert Schuhmann Conservatory in Dusseldorf, Germany, Kamal soon felt constricted by the limitations of classical music. He took up bass guitar and played in a variety of jazz and rock bands, always aware that he had jet to develop his unique style and sound.
After years of band work, Kamal discovered in 1984 synthesisers and sequencers. His experiments excited him as he realised that he could develop complex instrumentation and arrangements using this new technology. The first album created like that, "Silhouette," was published with Nightingale Records and became an instant "New Age Classic." The music that followed this success, like all innovative art forms, is difficult to categorise. It is both dynamic and soothing, celebrative and reflective. It can however be divided into two broad styles. One is ranging from slow instrumental ballads to more lively, celebrating moods and world music. Most arrangements are with drums and percussion and are strongly melody oriented.
The other style is more quiet and meditative. It creates an atmosphere of relaxation and healing and has become well known with healers and therapists.

Kamal's birth name is "Martin Oberschelp". After his emigration to Australia in 1993 he adopted the surname of his wife, Laura, and published under the name "Kamal - Martin Ancedy". Since 1997, he headed the last name of his second wife, Iris, "Kamal M. Engels".
