Liron, Tagel, and Tair Haim are the bright faces and colorful garb behind A-WA, an Israeli band best known for their 2016 album Habib Galbi (Love of my Heart) and their hit single by the same name. Combining melodies reminiscent of Sephardic piyyutim – traditional liturgical poems – and lyrics written in Judeo-Yemeni Arabic with electronic beats, A-WA has reached global fame. See them perform with San Francisco’s own live/electronic collective Afrolicious.
