“Rasha Nahas has the Weimar cabaret with added violins and rockabilly” The Guardian

 

Rasha Nahas is a singer, guitarist, songwriter and performance artist, currently living and working in Berlin.

As a songwriter and classical guitarist since the age of 10, Rasha has long been fostering a sound that moves seamlessly between the resonances of early Rock n’ Roll and the reckless echoes of Free Jazz, added with her very own approach to songwriting and performance, which is influenced by her experience in the performance arts and theater.

Her unmistakable sound and unique artistic identity were born and shaped in the Palestinian underground scene in her home town of Haifa; fabrics of electric guitars combined with classical technique, with a penchant for fierce yet intimate storytelling carrying bold, unabashed poetry and howling violins.

Now 22 years old, with one EP out (Am I, 2016) and together with her captivating performance, Nahas has already toured and performed in Europe, South America, UK and the Middle East, including shows in Glastonbury Festival, SIM São Paulo and many other festivals.

Her debut full length album, which she co-produced in Berlin and recorded together with her band, is due to be released in the summer of 2019 with a tour in Europe and The Middle East.
