What is A-WA?
Three letters that you may not know how to pronounce (for now)
Three sisters whose sweeping and uncompromising creation will take you on an exciting journey.
From the first time A-Wa took the stage 1 year ago, they’ve been dropping jaws, raising eyebrows, making people dance: from hipsters to families, from festivals to clubs, young and old, Polish, French, Israeli, and all over.
To tell the story of A-WA, we have to go a few years back, to a family who lives in the small village ‘Shaharut’ in southern Israel. Not too far from the Egyptian border. In beautiful prairie landscapes with magical desert sunsets, Tair, Liron and Tagel grew up – three sisters (out of six siblings) to the Haim family.
As a gift from God, all members of the Haim family are blessed with musical talent. All three sisters studied music, sang, danced and performed together and separately since a very young age. In their childhood home they listened to many different kinds of music, such as Greek music, Yemenite music, Jazz, R&B, Hip Hop, Reggae, Progressive rock and more. The inspirations that sustained them, and the warm musical home that encouraged them, have become the creative part and parcel of their lives. CLICK HERE to read more!
