Patrick Lama, the son of the organist, composer and teacher Augustine Lama (often referred to as the Father of Palestinian Music), studied composition with Henri Dutilleux and conducting with Pierre Dervaux in Paris. Active as a concert pianist as well as composer, Patrick has written many solo piano works which he has performed across Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East and in the USA.
