Mira Awad is a female Palestinian-Israeli singer-songwriter who has dedicated her life and international career to bridging between communities and sending out a call for human solidarity. Adam Gorlizki is a Jewish-Israeli singer-songwriter, with some radio hits in his resume, who sings about social justice within Israel and seeks to create a dialogue between people. The two artists couldn’t have come from more opposite sides of the Israeli narrative, but after years of professional acquaintance that gradually turned into a personal friendship, they join their voices, and their repertoires, into a magical evening of song and storytelling. The two artists accompany each other, Adam Gorlizki on piano or keyboard and Mira Awad on guitar and percussion, and perform each other’s repertoire, in both languages: Hebrew and Arabic (with some songs in English).
Born in Rama village in the Galilee, to Palestinian father-Anwar, and Bulgarian mother-Snejanka, currently living in Tel-Aviv. She studied at the Rimon School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and throughout her career she developed a unique fusion of sounds, combining the East with the West, weaving the Arabic language and it’s oriental ornaments with Western harmonies, and bringing together her passions for folk, rock, jazz, latin music, traditional Middle Eastern and Balkan music into a rich tapestry of sounds, songs and observations.
Born and raised in Tel-Aviv, Adam started his career as the keyboard player for Israeli star performers like Ivri Leader and Idan Reichel and then was spotted by the international band Mattafix and was invited to tour with them. But Adam always dreamed of a solo career, therefore he eventually left the band, came back to Israel and issued his first solo album. The theme song “Always coming back to you” conquered the Israeli radio playlists. Adam’s music could be categorized as Israeli-Folk, where his tunes are lyrics are very Israeli, but the musical production is influenced by Rock and American Folk music. His second album “Two countries” featured songs with strong messages about social justice.
