Tel Aviv-based singer, songwriter, actress, and cultural activist Mira Awad has collaborated with many international artists including Noa, Idan Raichel, Andrea Boccelli, Bobby McFerrin, and more. Born in Rameh village in the Galilee to a Palestinian father and Bulgarian mother, she studied at the Rimon School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Mira has developed a unique fusion of sounds, combining the East with the West, weaving the Arabic language and its oriental ornaments with Western harmonies, thus creating unique modern Arabic fusion music, with a rich tapestry of sounds.
As an actress, Mira participated in numerous theatre productions, hosted several TV shows, and starred on the high rated series “Arab Labor.” She established her own world music label called LabelFree, and also writes music for theatre and film. She teaches stage performance and gives talks.
Mira is very much identified with the agenda of dialogue and co-existence. She is a relentless peace activist and believes in anti-violence activity to build bridges towards resolutions.
Like all Joe’s Pub shows, all ages are welcome, but please be aware that performances may include adult language and topics.
