Karam Salem is an award-winning composer based in Los Angeles. Karam was born and raised in Baghdad, Iraq. He had developed a strong passion for music and found that music was the language for expressing his emotions and ideas. He started his career in music at a very young age as a pianist. He had the honor to perform at historical stages such the Babylon and many other sites in the Middle East. At age 12, Karam was invited to represent his country as a pianist to perform in front of the First Lady of Jordan. 

Because of the dangerous situation in Baghdad, Iraq, Karam relocated to Syria in 2006 as a refugee. Two years later, he received a full-tuition scholarship to study at Holy Cross College in Notre Dame, Indiana because of his talent in music. Later on, Karam enhanced his skills at the Film Scoring Program at UCLA, where he worked and studied with Hollywood's award-winning composers and orchestrators to craft his art. 

Karam’s music has been heard on television, independent films, feature films, web series, documentaries, and concert halls around the U.S. and the Middle East. Karam’s love for world, suspense, action, and drama genre can be heard in his music.
