Noel Kharman is a Palestinian singer-songwriter from a village on the outskirts of Haifa. The 21 year old became an internet sensation after releasing a mashup cover of Adele’s “Hello” and Fairouz’s “كيفك انت,” which has gone viral overnight and received 27 million views and counting. She has since released a number of mashup covers combining Middle Eastern and Western music, creating a unique juxtaposition between two distinct sounds.
With her independent and hard work, and the limiting circumstances and isolation imposed on her for belonging to the Palestinian minority in Israel, she was able to reach 140 million combined plays, Kharman’s songs have transcended the borders of her small village to reach listeners across the Arab world and even world wide.
She is currently working on an original EP that will be produced in Berlin.
Kharman’s vision is to help push Middle Eastern sound onto the international stage.
