The Mod Club, 722 College St.
Israel’s hottest new world music act is A-Wa, three sisters who combine the songs and unique harmony singing style of their Yemeni roots with contemporary funk, electronica and hip-hop grooves. With songs in Hebrew, English and Yemeni-Arabic, Tair, Liron and Tagel Haim are shattering expectations with their fresh and funky sounds marrying disparate influences. Discovered and produced by Tomer Yosef of the pioneering Israeli world music crew Balkan Beat Box, A-Wa became a viral sensation last year with the video for their song “Habib Galbi,” which went on to become the first ever Arabic-language song to top the Israeli music charts. The group has even developed a following across the Arab world. Appealing to diverse audiences of any age, A-Wa has already made waves across Europe and is now poised for breakout international success in 2016, beginning with this, their debut North American tour. http://www.a-wamusic.com/
