Hawa Dafi is a band from the Golan Heights, the Syrian territory occupied since 1967. They have developed a unique sound by fusing Arabic instrumentation and vocal harmonies with energetic rock, reggae and gypsy music blended with atmospheric electronic music. They wrote and recorded their first full length album Our Story in 2015.
Our Story was reviewed widely (Song Lines, Brownbook, Beehive) and placed 2nd on Arabalogy KZSU 90.1 FM’s Top 20.
Since then they have been touring extensively, building their following, selling out large venues and playing in major festivals. Their collaborations are numerous and include international musicians such Tareq Aboushi, Dam, Moneer Troudi and Trio Juobran.
