Asala Mostafa Nasri ( _ar. أصالة مصطفى نصرى) (also known as: Asala, Assala and Assalah) (born on May 15 1965) is a Syrian singer.

Early life and career

Asala was born in Damascus, Syria to a middle class couple. Mostafa Nasri, Asala's father, was a revered Syrian composer and singer who recognized her singing talent early on and launched her singing career. She was very attached to her father who taught her to love music. Her infatuation with music entertained her through her childhood, she was much more content with the radio than a doll. Asala began her musical career by performing patriotic, religious, and children's songs when she was four years old. She sang the theme song, "Qessas Al Sho'oub" (Arabic: قصص الشعوب), of the cartoon show, "Hekayat Alamiyah" (Arabic: حكايات عالمية).In 1986, Mostafa Nasri passed away after suffering from internal bleeding caused by a car accident. The untimely passing of Asala's father caused her great grief and she left singing and took up her duties as the eldest child. At the young age of seventeen, she took care of her siblings, Reem, Amani, Ayman and Ayham with her mother.

Asala's commercial musical career debuted in 1991 with "Law Ta'rafou" (Arabic: لو تعرفو). The album had 4 songs in the oriental operatic "tarab" style. The album was an instant hit with heartbreaking songs like "Ya Sabra Yana" and "Samehtak Ketir". She quickly cemented her presence in a growing industry brimming with new, young talent like Najwa Karam, Saber Rebai, Angham, and Abdelmajeed Abdullah.

Personal life

Asala has two children from her first marriage to Ayman Al Dahabi, whom she divorced in 2005 following his adultery scandal. She currently has custody of both their children, Sham and Khaled. She is now married to famous Palestinian-American director Tarek Al Eryan. She was pregnant with Tarek's child in early 2007 but suffered a miscarriage halfway through the pregnancy. Asala is a Sunni Muslim.

Asala does not own any properties.

Bahraini citizenship

Asala was granted Bahraini citizenship by Bahraini King Hamad Bin Issa Al Khalifa a few days after she gave a spectacular performance in the operetta "Love and Loyalty" in celebration of Bahrain’s Independence Day. [ Asala Nasri becomes a Bahraini citizen] ]

Asala holds three citizenships, Syrian, Bahraini, and Egyptian.
