A-Wa

A-Wa ("Ay-wa") are one of the most exciting new bands in global pop music. With unique magical voices and lots of natural groove, the 3 singers (Fair, Liron und Tegel Haim) combine timeless Yemenite folk songs with modern hip-hop beats and electronic elements. Their selfconfident attitude represents a strong and modern image of women in the usually conservative Middle East and convinced fans around the globe.

“Habib Galbi” became a viral hit with over 10 million views up to date. Their debut album of the same name, produced by Tomer Yosef (Balkan Beat Box), was released in 2016 and reached Gold status in Israel. Their latest album „Bayti Fi Rasi“ was released in May 2019.

Press
"Denn der Klang von A-wa ist für alle attraktiv. Arabischer Gesang auf Hip-Hop-Beats und Elektro, inspiriert von den vielen verschiedenen Einflüssen einer in ihrer Vielfalt typischen israelischen Jugend."
Die Welt
"And while the comparisons to M.I.A. are hard to resist (neon! World music!), the Arava Valley natives are singularly themselves — extensions of a wider movement for Israeli youth to reconnect with their Middle East roots."
