OFRA HAZA (†)

OFRA HAZA was an Israeli singer, actress and international recording artist. Her voice has been described as a "tender" mezzo-soprano. Inspired by a love of her Yemenite and Hebrew culture, her music quickly spread to a wider Middle Eastern audience, somehow bridging the divide between Israel and the Arab countries. As her career progressed, OFRA HAZA was able to switch between traditional and more commercial singing styles without jeopardizing her credibility. Her music fused elements of Eastern and Western instrumentation, orchestration and dance-beat. She became successful in Europe and the Americas; during her singing career, she earned many platinum and gold discs, not only for her albums but also for her hit singles including "Galbi", "Im Nin'alu", "Wish Me Luck", "Ya Ba Ye", and "Mata Hari".

Sadly, OFRA HAZA died of AIDS-related pneumonia on 23rd February 2000, at the age of 42 !
