After taking Israel by storm, A Wa sisters set their sights on Europe: We don’t hide our identity

Three Israeli sisters have recently returned to their Yemeni roots after releasing their Arabic song ‘Habib Galbi’, which topped the Israeli charts, making it the first Arabic-language song to reach the number one spot in the country’s history.

Singing in the Yemeni dialect of their grandparents, the sisters from the A Wa band, (Arabic for Yes), have so far received over one million YouTube hits for their song.

The band, which consists of three sisters, Tair, Liron, and Tagel Haim, come from a small, isolated village called Shaharut, which lies near the Egyptian border in southern Israel, where the sisters say that the desert- like surroundings of their village helped them imagine and create things out of nothing.
