Yemen and Africa are separated by sea, a sea of prayer, passion, dance, love and longing for freedom.
Gulaza continues the natural evolution of Yemenite Women songs.
Mystical texts that have passed for centuries from mother to daughter
acquire a modern and contemporary meaning in a special instrumental composition. The combination of traditional Saharan strings, cello and acoustic guitars, and the fact that these songs are sang for the first time by a man - creates a unique soundtrack that takes the listener into a world of prayer, passion, dance, love and longing for freedom.
