Jai D´Or

Jai D´Or is a music project from Aachen that started in 2016 in the basement of a student residence. The band initially experimented with different directions in small constellations. Since then, the group has steadily grown and developed . The special music of the project is characterized by a steady core of drums, bass, piano, guitar, and vocals, as well as a varying accompaniment of saxophone, flute, trombone, and percussion. Influences from jazz, soul, funk, and other genres as well as the members’ different cultural backgrounds make for an original and individual sound.

Daddy Cookiz

Daddy Cookiz - one of Atomic Spliff's singers, is now doing a stint as a solo artist. With only one microphone, melodics, and a drum machine on stage, he easily enchants every audience. Growing up with Jamaican rhythms, he naturally took them in and is now highly appreciated for his rousing live performances. From the very first note you will be immersed in a sea of strong and positive energy! Experience it yourself at Aachen September Special!

A-Wa ("Ay-wa") are the world pop sensation from the Israeli Negev Desert. The music by the three sisters Fair, Liron, and Tegel Haim is a mixture of traditional Yemeni melodies and modern hip-hop beats, complemented by electronic sounds. Their confident performance represents a strong and modern image of women in the otherwise rather conservative Middle East and continues to win fans the world over.

Following the overwhelming success of their single "Habibi Galbi", which has by now already had over ten million views, their debut album of the same name, produced by Tomer Yousef of Balkan Beat Box, was released in 2016. Their latest album was released in spring 2019.
