Jawhar

Folk | Belgium

Biography

The song is a universal language. Jawhar was born in Tunis. His Mother an Arabic teacher, his father a lover of theatre. Jawhar, now based in Brussels, distils his background and pours it out in heartfelt, careworn and profoundly beautiful songs.

Sung in Arabic with gorgeous arrangements. These song, fragile yet hanging with a dark weight, have seen him compared to an Arabic Nick Drake. High praise indeed but not precisely defining Jawhar. A captivating performer whose music exists in a category of it’s own.

Timeless music as evocative, sensual and overwhelming as a slow sunset in the city of his birth.
