Almwaya make experimental world music and tell stories with electronic beats, synthesizers and the oud.
Almwaya's music tells stories that travel through the warm and sweet waters of the Nile, feed from the infinite energy of Lebanon's cedars, and reflect the glory of the Alps and the truth of the Mediterranean. Almwaya take listeners into their unique universe of world music, enriched with electronic beats, synthesizers and experimental sounds. Just as distinctive as Almwaya's music are the nostalgic lyrics, often sung in a fantasy language. They only make sense through the colors of their tones and the vocal frequencies that integrate and balance the feminine and the masculine.
Almwaya are Maya Aghniadis (Lebanon/Greece; keyboards, flute, drums, vocals, loops and beats), Wael Sami Elkholy (Switzerland/Egypt; oud and vocals) and Florian Bolliger (Switzerland) on bass.
