Palestinian singer, composer and instrumentalist Rasha Nahas has a distinctive approach to songwriting, storytelling and performance. As a genre-defying, narrative-focused artist, Rasha has been crafting a keenly singular music universe, cultivated in and loyal to the underground.
Driven by candid lyrics with disarming vulnerability, Nahas’ theatrical-poetic rock debut album, ‘Desert’, chronicled her journey from Haifa to Berlin. Her LP “Amrat” (2023), released via UK leading independent label Cooking Vinyl, reached further critical acclaim, while being Rasha's first foray into Arabic-language lyrics. ‘Amrat’, is a sentimental body of work laden with nostalgia and longing, maneuvering seamlessly between the thematic duality of urban and rural landscapes. Recorded at 67 Studio in the occupied Golan Heights, it featured contributions from some of the most respected musicians of the indie-scene in Palestine. The compelling album was celebrated with sold-out shows in Germany and saw Rasha embark on a wider European tour.
