Dudu Tassa, a major fiqure in Israel's rock scene, is one of the country's most prominent singer-songwriters, adding his powerful voice, musicianship and energy to the history of popular Arabic music.
Tassa's amazing musical story begins with his grandfather and his great uncle, known as the Al-Kuwaiti Brothers, who were innovators and creators of modern Iraqi music in the first half of the 20th century and highly esteemed Jewish musicians in the Arab world.
"His last album, a journey to his Iraqi musical roots, Dudu Tassa and the Kuweitis earned great reviews... the concerts are considered unique... a wild stage animal with a huge soul." Yediot Tel Aviv
The Jerusalem Post says, "The sound is rock ‘n roll, though Tassa who is a well-known genre jumper, also reaches out to his oriental roots. His compositions mix up sounds into a unique, Tassa-ish blend. Lyrically, he takes listeners on a journey of honesty and self-discovery."
With his explosive stage presence and the 21st century brew of Iraqi, Middle-eastern and Israeli rock music, Tassa creates his own unique style known as Iraq'n'roll and is one of the most exciting world music acts on the scene today. With his band, featuring qanun, violin, cello, guitars, bass and drums, Tassa creates an innovative, joyous musical experience that makes his concerts breathtaking celebrations.
