Dudu Tassa grew up in Tel-Aviv in the 1980s and released his first album at the age of 13. In 2002 he joined the band of Israel’s most popular TV show, and nowadays he is one of Israel’s most prominent singers-songwriters and a major figure in the country’s rock scene.

Being from Iraqi-Jewish descent, Dudu’s “root-searching” revealed an amazing musical story – Dudu’s grandfather and his brother, known as the Al-Kuwaiti brothers, were the greatest composers/ musicians in Baghdad during the first half of the 20th century, innovators and creators of modern Iraqi music, still highly esteemed in the Arab world is spite of their Jewish origin, and the fact they left Iraq and immigrated to Israel in the 1950s.
In his new, highly appraised and very successful album and show, Tassa with his powerful voice and innovative musicianship, salutes the Al-Kuwaitis, sings their songs in Arabic and Hebrew, and integrates Iraqi, Middle-eastern, and Israeli rock music, in his unique style known as “Iraq’n’roll” (also the name of the documentary film made about Dudu Tassa)

The band includes: Qanun, Violin, Cello, Guitars, Bass, Drums.

A documentary film titled : "Iraq' n Roll" has just been made about Dudu Tassa and the story of the Al Kuwaiti brothers. See below a link to the film trailer .
In Dudu's website there is a section dedicated to the amazing story of the Al Kuwaiti brothers: www.dudu-tassa.co.il

This show is not only about the amazing voice, musicianship and energy of Dudu Tassa, but it makes justice to an important chapter in the history of popular Arabic music.
