Aveva Dese, an Ethiopian-Israeli singer-songwriter who fuses traditional Ethiopian sounds & groove with her soul-pop melodies, producing a unique style with universal appeal. As a first generation to immigrants from Ethiopia, AvevA brings a fascinating life story into her music. She sings about society, freedom, and love, creating an inspiring and empowering experience.  Aveva 2nd album – “In My Thoughts”, was released in march 2019 and has received great reviews in the Israeli music scene. AvevA brings her own unique cultural flare to the table with her own style: a mix of powerful texts (in both English and Amharic) and traditional Ethiopian sounds. Originally discovered on the Israeli version of The Voice, Aveva has displayed her universal appeal on tours with Idan Raichel and with her original music at festivals across Israel, Europe and North America.
