Founded in 2014, Nawa is a cooperation of Berlin-based musicians from Palestine, Syria, Italy,
Greece, Poland, US.

The instrumental line-up consists of: the Arabic lute/oud (Nadim Sarrouh), the violin (Penelope
Gkika), the oriental flute/nay (Valentina Bellanova), the contrabass (Adam Goodwin) and various
forms of percussion (Amir Czwink). Nawa aims at contributing to the popularity of classical Arabic
and Turkish chamber music, a genre very little known in the West. The repertoire of Nawa
consists of pieces in traditional oriental musical forms such as: Sama’i, Bashraf, Longa, Darij,
Tahmila, Dulab and many more. However, Nawa also interprets contemporary compositions in a
classical setup. Central to all kind of oriental musical forms is the Taqsim: a structured, mode-
based instrumental improvisation which focusses on rhythmic and melodic patterns in order to
explore modes and modulations. Together with the structured musical forms it creates a highly
dynamic and lively listening experience, very much alike to western improvisation genres such as
Jazz.
