On May 31, A-WA, chart-topping Yemenite-Israeli trio of sisters, will release their second full-length album, “BAYTI FI RASI” (My Home is in My Head) via S-Curve Records.
On their new album BAYTI FI RASI, produced by Tamir Muskat of Balkan Beat Box, they translate the journey of their great grandmother from Yemen to Israel during the Post-WWII “Operation Magic Carpet” into fourteen undeniable anthems. Sung in Yemeni Arabic dialect and backed by indigenous instrumentation, swaths of electronic orchestration, and gritty hip-hop bounce, it’s all introduced in cinematic videos along with the single
and the new single “Hana Mash Hu Al Yaman” (Here is not Yemen)
The new album follows, A-WA’s critically acclaimed debut Habib Galbi (Love Of My Heart).
A The viral video for the album’s title track amassed a staggering 11 million-plus views. The album attracted tastemaker praise, NPR claimed, “Instead of earnestly reconstructing the music of their cultural ancestors, A-WA has catapulted this roots material into new terrain.” Recognized as international style icons, Vogue delightfully asked, “Who are these women in high top sneakers and djellabas, and where have they been all their lives?” Between packed shows, Pitbull even jumped on an Official Remix of “Habib Galbi” as they amassed millions of global streams.
