Zeina Barhoum is the founder of Alcántara music and art series. She launched her first album, Alcántara, in November 2014, under the patronage of HRH Princess Wijdan Al Hashemi and in partnership with the Italian Embassy in Jordan, accompanied by Amman Conservatory Orchestra and her guest singers on the album, Baritone Simone Scatarzi and Tenor Romolo Tisano. The title of the album reflects Zeina’s dedication to building strong connections of understanding and compassion through her music.
In February 2017, Barhoum’s second album, Alcantara II, was recorded live and launched at a concert accompanied by The Philharmonic Orchestra of Lviv and Choir lead by Conductor Lorenzo Tazzieri. Zeina gave a performance at a venue in Somerset organized by a group known as Ebenezer Presents, as part of her album tour for her new project Alcantara Beyond the Wells: Bridging Cultures with Music and Art in cooperation with Somerset artist Peter Lawrence. The project is inspired by her album series Alcantara: Bridging Cultures Across the Mediterranean and Beyond.
