Biografia

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), Phil (drums) and Gaël (saxophones, flutes and keyboards).

Their meeting in 2002 with the Canadian label WIKKID RECORDS is a milestone for the band with the release of their first album in 2003, licensed worldwide : (Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Spain, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Algeria…) Aïwa made more than 150 concerts all around France but also in Switzerland, Morocco, Spain, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Germany, Poland and is touring a lot in the UK.

ELNAR the new full-length release from Aïwa, The French Kings of Oriental breakbeat offers a fantastic body of work, sucessfully blending Middle Eastern instruments, vocals and sounds with Hiphop and breaks delicately spliced with cutting edge technology. The album features New Yorks finest ; Mc Jamalski (Boogie Down Productions), Says (X Makeena) and Anissa Derkaoui (Algerian singer).

    w00t, second post!! eat it trolls!! (Also, Aiwa is awesome, heard one of their songs on the last Transglobal album and got their albums on iTunes, removed the DRM with myfairtunes, of course.) Who think Aiwa has a possibility of breaking out in the US as a significant underground artist? Right now they seem to be almost unknown...
