Kulna Sawa كلنا سوا (Reloaded & Revisited)

In 1995, the band was formed by young musicians who started re-arranging several folkloric songs, and produced them again in a contemporary way.
"Kulna Sawa"  
(Meaning "all of us are together")   became increasingly serious about their music and their widely spread popularity, they embarked on a series of concerts and TV appearances, culminating in several concerts in October 1999 in Damascus and Aleppo. The concerts were so successful that they lasted three nights and were attended by over than 5000 people.
The band was invited to perform at The Syrian Song Festival, which was held at the Ancient Aleppo Citadel in 1999. The band also performed a series of concerts for three nights with British group called (Sin’e) in September 2000. The two bands performed individually and together on stage as part of the British Council's activities and was extremely successful and a unique experience for the band.
In November, the band organized a charity performances for four nights and were attended by over than 7000 people and in May 2001.
KulnaSawa signed a worldwide recording contract with EMI Music and released two international albums starting June 2001 including the hugely, crossover singles "Nezlen Ala El Bustan" and "Wain A Ramallah" and other line favorites including "Almaya", "Koul Shi Esmoh Jadid" and "Noujmah Kutbiah". The album got Golden Record.
The highly creative video clips were self-produced and is sure to generate large airplay by the premium TV networks.
The band toured abroad and did successful concerts like Dubai, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and lately during the launching of their second album "Musaique" did three big concerts with the special appearance of the international Egyptian Musical star Mohamed Mounir that added a great value to the event.
And like a very important stops in their history they shared the stage in Broadway in New York on November 2004 with the International artist of the The Sopranos TV series Dominic Chianese.
Also they performed with the musician of Peter, Paul and Mary, Peter Yarrow in Saint Louis.
A Concert for Peace Tour last November 2004 brought KulnaSawa, The well-known music group from Damascus, Syria, to American audiences. KulnaSawa combined the distinctive sounds of oriental music with the beat and style of American music for a unique sound. Concerts were held in more than 20 major cities around the U.S including the headquarters of the United Nations in New York were they got their tow Awards of Peace.
In the midst of the current tensions and conflict between East and West, the virtuoso musicians of Together/KulnaSawa which are made up of highly accomplished young Christian and Muslim musicians from Syria used music, the universal language, as a way to build understanding and trust between Americans and the people of the Middle East.
And this what made of them one of the nominees to win the Golden European Quality Award for next year.
The Daily Star, an English-language newspaper, said that  KulnaSawa "is breaking new ground with their fusion of Western and Middle Eastern music styles."
