A-Wa consists of a trio of Israeli sisters whose melding of ancient Yemenite songs with hip-hop, reggae, pop, and electronic dance music resulted in the 2015 breakout hit "Habib Galbi." The group's sophisticated and uniquely global sound garnered international acclaim in advance of their 2019 follow-up album, Bayti Fi Rasi. Hailing from the small farming village of Shaharut in Southern Israel, Tair, Liron, and Tagel Haim began singing and dancing at a young age. They later began collaborating as adults, delving deep into their heritage where they discovered a treasure trove of nearly lost chants and folk songs in the Yemenite Arabic dialect. Through experimentation, they fused their love of hip-hop, rock, R&B, jazz, rock, and reggae with these traditional songs and melodies, performing at local festivals and releasing homemade videos.
