AvevA Dese “AfroSoul”
Ethiopian-Israeli singer/songwriter AvevA Dese, is a rising star in the Israeli music scene. Aveva’s music features stimulating African groove with a touch of the fresh urban beat of Tel Aviv. As a child of Jewish parents, who faced struggle and persecution to come from Ethiopia to Israel, Aveva brings a unique life story that is conveyed through her music. In her show, “AvevA – AfroSoul”, you will discover powerful texts, both in English and Amharic, about our society, love, and the endless search for freedom. Combined with traditional Ethiopian sounds the music creates a fascinating intercultural connection.
