Possessive suffixes in Arabic I wanted to write a sentence describing a Palestinian musician I'm recommending to a friend - the sentence I have is:

هو فلسطيني و موسيقاه خميلة

(he is palestinian and his music is beautiful)

Is this correct? I've never used possessive words in Arabic before so I tried my best

If in MSA, then I suggest you say: الموسيقى التي يعزفها هذا الشاب الفلسطيني، جميلة If in a Palestinian dialect, you would say: الموسيقى اللي بيعزفها هادا الشب الفلسطيني.. حلوة Your sentence is correct if you wrote ج instead of خ in جميلة. But it doesn't sound natural.
