Lubna Salame was born in Haifa and now lives in Kfar Yassif. She is a resident singer with the Nazareth Orchestra.
As a child, she began singing classical Arabic songs with a church choir. She specialized in singing songs of Um Kulthum, Layla Mourad and Yisman. Already on her first concert – at the Israeli Festival 2000 alongside with Sapho and Zehava Ben – she won the audience’s love and appreciation and became a star overnight.
