Dudu Tassa & The Kuwaitis
Dudu Tassa & The Kuwaitis
One of the most prominent singer-songwriters and guitarists, and a dominant figure on the Israeli rock scene, Dudu’s latest project is a tribute to his grandfather and great-uncle. Known as the Al-Kuwaiti Brothers, they were highly popular composer/musicians in Baghdad during the first half of the XXth Century. Dudu interprets their songs in Arabic and Hebrew and integrates new sounds into his rock band line-up, to create a new style, best described as Iraq’n Roll. His band was Radiohead’s opening act for the 2017 US tour, and he has performed, among others, in the Sziget Festival, Colours of Ostrava, 4 Cultures Lodz, and Coachella.
