Biography

Zehava Ben (זהבה בן) is one of the most popular Israeli female vocalists in the Mizrahi genre, the Turkish style of singing which has come to dominate Oriental music in the ’90s.
Zehava is very proud of her Moroccan heritage, and most of her music is quite distinctive of that. Zehava has appeared in many music festivals outside Israel, namely in Sweden and France. Zehava is also popular in the Middle-East, even if her music is banned due to her Israeli origin. Zehava appeared in the 1996 election campaign for ‘Meretz’ (left wing civil rights movement), singing the famous ‘Shir lashalom’ (Song for peace).

One of her famous songs is Ma Yihye (What will be) from 1994, which is included in the Buddha Bar collection.
