Amal`s music is pioneering, creating a post-modern music style in which different Mediterranean influences meet. Her first album "Amal" was released in 1998, and her second, "Shauq" in 2004. Her songs, which take inspiration from Palestinian folklore and traditional Arabic heritage, mingled with pop music elements, express her struggle against the marginalization and exclusion that Arab Palestinian culture faces. Her first album, self-entitled “Amal” was written and composed by a diverse group of artists and musicians. It was released internationally in 2000 by EMI Hemisphere. Her second album "Shauq" (“Longing”) was recorded live in April 2004, at the Crown Hall in Jerusalem, with the Jerusalem symphonic orchestra. Amal`s latest album, "Na` na` ya Na` na`" is a bouquet of traditional Palestinian folksongs gathered from the galilee, the mid-land triangle and the negev, from the distant past and the present, that have survived wars, catastrophes, and major social upheavals. These are songs of struggle and harvest, marriage and birth, songs of joyful women, wanderers and parting couples, that remain forever young.
