Nawal

Nawal is a musician from Comoros. Her music draws on traditional Comorian influences and incorporates sounds from African and Arabic culture.[1] She plays many instruments, including the guitar and qanbūs. She sings in Comorian, Arabic, French and English.

Today known as the "Voice of Comoros", Nawal is one of the first women from her country to take the international stage as a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Nawal has self-produced both her albums, and has toured in Europe, Africa, North America, the Middle East and Central Asia. Her home is currently in Paris, France. She will release her third album most likely next year and it will be a "whole, new horizon"
