I predict world domination for this Israeli band. “Habib Galbi” is their single with 1+ million hits on YouTube (and it was blasting out of a clothing store on Allenby yesterday).
A-WA is three Israeli Jewish sisters from a farming village in the Negev, with a Yemenite dad, who take traditional Arabic folk songs and add modern beats.
They have fans across the Arab world and were featured on the “Mipsterz” (Muslim Hipsters) Facebook page. There was even an article about them in Foreign Policy magazine earlier this year.
