Perhaps she really had to come a long way in order to realize her musical ideas: Zoriya Tuvia ist a singer, dancer and actress with a classical background. She was born and raised in Israel, and one of the schools she attended was the renowned Ruben Academy of Music and Dance. But only in Berlin she met Palestinian percussionist Khader Ahmad, with whom she has since been working on a fusion of hebrew and arabic topics. These ideas have been further developed by Zoe and her band with both a keen appreciation for modernity and a strong devotion to the songwriter tradition in popular music.
