About Aïwa

AIWA is a collective founded in 1998 by Wamid and Naufalle, two Iraqi brothers brought up in France. They began mixing their musical practice (bass for Wamid and percussions and Arabic rap for his brother) to their growing interest for electronical music they were producing.

They're trying to make the classical Arabic music heard from their parent's records (Om Kalsoum, Abdel Halim Hafez, Fairuz...) meeting with the western music. They've been joined by Severine (female singer and also composer) Read more on Last.fm
