Three young sisters from Israel recreate the music of their Yemenite ancestors. The band adds a contemporary sound for an experience reminiscent of Ofra Haza yet totally fresh.

Three sisters from a small village in southern Israel near the Egyptian border have created a modern version of ancient Yemenite women's chanting which was passed from generation to generation for centuries. Together with producer Tomer Yosef, the vocalist for Balkan Beat Box, they created a unique identity with a lot of groove, electronics and a brand new global beat fragrance: a happy, warm and genuine music that is breaking through language barriers and boundaries.
