"A-WA" concert, part of "BAM - Barcelona Acció Musical"

A-WA (Israel / traditional Middle East and electronics)

Three sisters, with long hair and whose surname is Haim, but unlike the American Haim sisters, these call themselves A-WA, which means “yes” in Arabic. Israelis with Yemeni roots, their paternal grandparents taught them traditional Yemeni songs, and Tair, Liron and Tagel, one a musician, one an architect and one a graphic designer, influenced by Ofra Haza – remember Im nin´alu, the international hit at the end of the 1980s by the so-called Jewish Madonna? – combine these songs with contemporary electronic music and hip-hop. Discovered by Tomer Yosef, singer with Balkan Beat Box, their international hit Habib Galbi has taken them right around the world. If what you really like about Omar Souleyman are not the turban and sunglasses, you’ll like A-WA. Yes, yes and yes again.
