about

Throughout my career i have had the privilege of working with many well-known artists, including some of my childhood heroes. In the process i have been challenged and awed, inspired and baffled, surprised and humbled.
Working with Mira Awad has brought the term 'collaboration' to a whole new dimension.
There is nothing obvious or glamorous about the road we've chosen to follow. There's nobody at the sidelines throwing flowers. Yet despite the difficulties, the different backgrounds and perspectives and the omnipresent pain forever threatening to engulf us, our resonance is so deep it often takes my breath away.
In a world of overwhelming mediocrity, of tainted principles and hollow words, of cynicism and egoism, Mira is a ray of light: a multi-talented free spirit, an indefatigable idealist, a fearless artist. She is unique in every sense of the word, waving her radiant smile defiantly against the bearers of doom, as beautiful inside as she is to behold.
Mira, it is an honor to create, perform and dream at your side.
Noa

---------------------------------------------------------

Most friendships don't have to endure challenges and ordeals. Ours was put through some of the most brutal tests. It was constantly challenged by the painful events of our bleeding region. It was doubted by others, suspected to be artificial and interest-driven. There have been attempts to injure it and break it apart. Many have tried to analyze it, categorize it, force it into simplistic molds, others tried to take advantage of it, use it for their own goals. But this friendship endured it all, and kept surprising everyone, including ourselves.
Achinoam, I am blessed to have met you, and honored to have joined forces with you. thank you for the great generosity you've shown me since we met 8 years ago, for the inspiration you give, and most importantly for your precious friendship.
Mira Awad

Track Name: There Must Be Another Way
there must be another, must be another way!

oh sister
your eyes
tell me all my heart really need to know
oh sister
so dear
you and i are here
raising up a voice that is clear

and when i cry i cry for both of us
my pain has no name
and when i cry, i cry to the merciless sky and say
there must be another way
there must be another way

عينيك بتقول
-your eyes say-
راح ييجي يوم وكل الخوف يزول
-"one day all fear will be gone"-
بعينيك اصرار
in your eyes there is persistence- -
انه عنا خيار
-that we have a choice-
نكمل هالمسار
-to continue this journey-
مهما طال
-no matter how long-
لانه ما في عنوان وحيد للاحزان
because there's more than one address for sorrow --
بنادي للمدى, للسما العنيده
i call out to the open plains, to the stubborn skies--
there must be another way
there must be another way
there must be another, must be another way

דרך ארוכה נעבור
- -we'll walk a long way
דרך כה קשה
-a road that's hard-
יחד אל האור
-together towards the light-
عينيك بتقول
-your eyes say-
كل الخوف يزول
-all fear will be gone-

and when i cry i cry for both of us
my pain has no name
and when i cry i cry to the merciless sky and say
there must be another way
there must be another way
there must be another, must be another way

והדמעות זולגות זורמות לשוא
-and the tears are falling, flowing in vain-
כאב ללא שם
-our pain has no name-
אנחנו מחכות
-we are waiting-
רק ליום שיבוא אחרי
-for the day after?-
there must be another way
Track Name: Will You Dance With Me?
בואי לרקוד איתי מול ירח
-will you dance with me in the moonlight-
בואי לרוץ איתי על החוף
-will you run with me on the shore-
בואי לרקוד איתי הרחוב שומם
--will you dance with me on an empty street
Counting
one two three, two two three, you and me
עד בלי סוף
--on and on

أهربي معي من الخطر
--run away with me from the danger
اتخبي عندي من المطر
-hide away with me from the rain-
أرقصي معي والبلد نعسان
--will you dance with me while the city sleeps
نبقى
-we'll be-
One two three two two three you and me
والقمر
--and the moon

Will you dance with me through the years?
As the seasons twirl and dive
Will you dance with me through the fears?
As the days pass quickly
Much too quickly
Much too quickly
One two three, two two three, you and me still alive

יד ביד נרוץ אל האופק
--hand in hand we run to the horizon
ندور ع الحلم المفقود
-searching for the lost dream-
הן כאבנו כבר את אשר עבר
--we've already mourned what has been
قولي
--say
One two three, two two three you and me
عنا وعود
-we have promises to keep-

אם ימי הסתיו והכפור
-if the Autumn and the frost-
את פנינו משנים
--change our faces
התרצי לרקוד אל האור
-will you dance with me to the light-
שיזרח עלינו
--that will shine on us
ينور علينا
-shine on us-
עד כלותינו
-to our end-
One two three, two two three, you and me still alive.

Will you dance with me through the years?
As the seasons twirl and dive
Will you dance with me through the fears?
Track Name: Faith in the Light
בימים של חושך
-in days of darkness-
אני רק רוצה להסתתר
-i just want to hide-
האור שבתוכי דועך
-the light within me fades-
ושוב הפחד מתעורר
--and the fear awakens
יש ימים שהכאב
--there are days when the pain
לא מותיר לי מחסה
- leaves me no shelter-
לאט את נישמתי פורם
-it slowly unravels my soul-
ואת האופק מכסה
-and covers the horizon-

where can we go from here?
sister, it's been one long night
what's to come? i fear
give me something to restore my faith in the light,
tell me that we're here to stay, and that we can set things right.

في أيام فيها شعور
-there are days when there's a feeling-
كلشي ضاع كلشي مكسور
--that all is lost and all is broken
وبلحظات من هالزي
--and in moments like these
الدنيا بتعتم حوالي
-the world around me darkens-
في أيام كلشي حزين
-there are days when all is sad-
وما في مطرح لراسي المسكين
-and there's no place to rest my weary head-
قلبي دايب وتعبان
--my heart is melted and tired
وجواتي داير بركان
and inside me a volcano threatens to erupt--

where can we go from here?
sister, it's been one long night
what's to come? i fear
give me something to restore my faith in the light,
tell me that we're here to stay, and that we can set things right.

where can we go from here?
sister, it's been one long night
what's to come? i fear
give me something to restore my faith in the light,
tell me that we're here to stay, and that we can set things right.
tell me that we're here to stay, and that we can set things right.
give me something to restore my faith in the light.
Track Name: Cloud
ه
ما حكينا كلمه كل الطريق. شو أصلاً بعد في ينقال؟ شبابيك السياره مفتوحه وبالراديو غيرت قنال. لا تسرع ما بدي نوصل خليني بهاللحظه موجوده الليل عم بينعنف بشعري والهوا بلفح خدودي. غيمه مغطيه القمر الليله وانت أكيد تعبان. فجأه بتقول لي ?شو هالعتمه؟ مش عارف أقرأ الإشارات? وأنا ما قلت لك إنه عن غيب بعرف هاي المسارات غيمه مغطيه القمر الليله وانت أكيد تعبان. ووصلنا, وكانت هي عم تستنانا ووصلنا, والطيارات تهدي من فوقينا وانت ركضت تحضنها, وأنا بحبشت المحطات أدور ع غناي أدندنها...


cloud
we haven?t said a word all the way,
what is there left to say?
the car windows are open,
and you search the radio for a different channel.
don?t speed up, i don?t want to get there,
i want to stay in this moment forever,
the wind is playing with my hair, caressing my cheeks.
a cloud is hiding the moon tonight and you must be tired.
suddenly you say:? it?s so dark i can?t see the road signs?,
and i don't tell you that i know these roads by heart.
a cloud is hiding the moon tonight and you must be tired.
and then, we arrived. and she was already waiting,
we arrived, and planes were landing above us,
you ran out to hold her,
and i searched the radio for a song to hum.
Track Name: Nannina
na ni na ni na ni na ni nanana
na ni na ni na ni noo
na ni na ni na ni
that's all i can do


voices in my head this morning
something that i read, a warning
nothing is the same,
but where we're going
nobody can say

sirens on the shore are calling
one thing is for sure,
we're all in deeper than our head
alive or dead
we're actors in a play

here at home i hold you closely to my heart
i want to shelter you, but i don't know where to start

na ni na ni na ni na ni nanana
na ni na ni na ni noo
na ni na ni na ni
that's all i can do

someone on the screen is lying
everybody else is crying
arrows to my heart,
but me, i'm trying not to fall apart

just before we crash, i'm hoping
there will be a door to open
secretly i pray
a day will come and you will find a way

you're the miracle i've been waiting for so long
i'm your shelter but i'm not feeling very strong


na ni na ni na ni na ni nanana
na ni na ni na ni noo
na ni na ni na ni
that's all i can do
here at home i hold you close,I hold you closely to my heart
I'm trying not to fall apart?.

you're the miracle i've been waiting for so long
i'm your shelter but i'm not feeling very strong

na ni na ni na ni na ni nanana
na ni na ni na ni noo
na ni na ni na ni
that's all i can do

na ni na ni na ni
that's all i can do?..
Track Name: After the Rain
تيمرق الشتاء
تيمرق الشتاء ويبَطِّل في غيوم تخبي السماء بردلك جواب تيمرق الشتاء ويبطل في ضباب يغطي على المدينه بشرحلك الأسباب بس إِسّا لا تسألني ولا تستعجل لأنه الشمس عم تتركني بكير. تيمرق الشتاء وتطول الإيام بِتبَطل تعاتبني تيمرق الشتاء وترجع لعنا الشمس تدَفي سماء المدينه بتصير تفهمني بس إِسّا لا تسألني ولا تستعجل لأنه الشمس عم تتركني بكير.




After all the rain After the clouds are gone When it's warm again Maybe I'll be strong After all the rain After the skies all clear All the answers have to wait 'Cause the sun's still not here But lately it's been cold And I've been trying to hold on Until the clouds are gone And lately I've been trying Not to disappear Until the skies all clear
Track Name: A Word
a word
about tomorrow
before we drown in sorrow
i am afraid
can no longer hide
the pounding of my poor heart inside
كلمه
عن بكره
قبل ما نصير
مجرد ذكرى
أنا بخاف
ما بخبي
هالدقات بتوجع قلبي
you need to find
someone to take the blame
i guess i'm doing just the same
we're so alike
we've been hurt before
don't want to do it anymore

a word now
about the doubt
that keeps you from reaching out
and touching me

מילה - كلمه
על מחר ? عن بكره
לפני שיהיה מאוחר ? قبل ما نصير مجرد ذكرى
אם אפחד ? أنا بخاف
לא אסתיר ? ما بخبي
כל פעימה שהלב מחסיר ? هالدقات بتوجع قلبي
Track Name: Frozen
ou only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You're frozen
When your heart's not open

You waste your time on hate and regret
you?re so consumed with how much you get
you?re broken
When your heart's not open


oooooo, if I could melt your heart
oooooo, we'd never be apart
oooooo, give yourself to me
oooooo, you hold the key
you hold the key

Now there's no point in placing the blame
And you should know I suffer the same
If I lose you
My heart will be broken

Love is a bird, she needs to fly
Let all the hurt inside of you die
You're frozen
When your heart's not open

oooooo, if I could melt your heart
oooooo, we'd never be apart
oooooo, give yourself to me
oooooo, you hold the key
you hold the key

My heart will be broken
When your heart's not open?

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You're frozen
When your heart's not open

oooooo, if I could melt your heart
oooooo, we'd never be apart
oooooo, give yourself to me
oooooo, you hold the key
you hold the key
Track Name: Olakatuna
علاقتنا
علاقتنا فيها رابط دم فيها روابط نزيف نزيف فلسفي نزيف ذي جماليات علاقتنا فيها قرب فيها بعد فيها تناقضات تناقضات تجعلني أجد في النزيف جماليات علاقتنا فيها صلة ولاده فيها صلة إجهاض إجهاض فكري إجهاض ذي روحانيات علاقتنا فيها موت فيها حياه فيها جنونيات جنونيات تجعلني أجد في الإجهاض روحانيات



olakatona- our relationship

our relationship has a blood connection
more likely, a bleeding connection
a philosophical bleeding
a bleeding with esthetic measures.
our relationship contains both intimacy and distance
it contains contradictions
contradictions that make me see esthetics in a bleeding

our relationship has a birth relation
a miscarriage relation
a miscarriage of thought
a spiritual miscarriage
our relationship contains both death and life
it contains madness
madness that makes me find spirituality in a miscarriage.
Track Name: Second Chance
you and i remember
how can we forget?
things we've said and done
dark nights in december
you are i regret
cannot be undone
but the clock's still ticking in a frantic trance
we are locked together in this tragic dance
promise me you will remember
that every second is a second chance
every second, a second chance
just a second, a second chance

ذكريات قديمه
-old memories-
عن كل اللي كان
-about all that has happened-
بعدها بالخيال
-are vivid in our imagination-
كلمات اليمه
-painful words-
بتتحدى النسيان
-that refuse to be forgotten-
راح تبقى بالبال
- -will dwell in our minds forever
بس دولاب الساعه راح يظل يدور
-but the clock's still ticking-
وف اي لحظه ممكن اننا نبني جسور
-at any moment we can start building-
اذا تواعدنا انه ما ننسى
-if we promise not to forget-

that every second is a second chance
every second, a second chance
just a second, a second chance
הימים עוברים והשנים חולפות
-days pass, and years go by-
אם נרצה עכשיו אפשר עוד לנסות
-if you want, we can still try-
אמרי לי רק שאת זוכרת
just tell me that you remember--
that every second is a second chance
every second, a second chance
just a second, a second chance
every second is a second chance
every second, a second chance
just a second, a second chance
Track Name: We Can Work it Out
try to see it my way
do i have to keep on talking 'till i can't go on
while you see it your way
there's a chance that we might fall apart before too long

we can work it out
we can work it out?

think of what you're saying
you can get it wrong and still you'll think that's it alright
think of what i'm saying
we can work it out and get it straigh or say goodnight

we can work it out
we can work it out?

life is very short
and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend
i have always thought
that it's a crime
so i will ask you once again..

only time will tell if i am right or i am wrong
while you see it your way
there's a chance that we might fall apart before too long

Track Name: Dance of Hope
when i am feelin' down
i do a little dance
beyond the wall of tears
there is a second chance

in the city, in the meadow
in the village, in the park
on the highway, in the jungle
i wanna take your hand in mine

when i am feelin' down
i sing a little song
beyond the wall of tears
nobody's right or wrong

in the city, in the meadow
in the village, in the park
on the highway, in the jungle
i wanna take your hand in mine

if our hands are tied
we gonna cut the rope
together you and me
dance the dance of hope!

in the city, in the meadow
in the village, in the park
on the highway, in the jungle
i wanna take your hand in mine

i wanna take your hand in mine.
