"Spiritual, socially conscious folk and femme rolk,
RISE is a ferocious album..." -The Jerusalem Post
"So frickin' astonishing in every way, this chick is a powerhouse. She's what you'd call a Sister, like Ani DiFranco or Julia Butterfly Hill." -The Hudson Valley Chronogram
"Songs to save humanity by..." -The Woodstock Times
You may say she's a dreamer, but Aliza Hava is definitely not your typical singer/songwriter. An award-winning songstress, she's also an activist and social entrepreneur who has been performing and working with international peace organizations for over a decade.
Hava's debut RISE is a statement of conscience that honors our collective humanity by calling for an end to war and an awareness of our environmental responsibilities. Her songs join Annie Lenox and Rickie Lee Jones on the soundtrack of the award-winning documentary FEMME: Women Healing the World, Directed by Emmanuel Itier and Executive Produced by Sharon Stone. FEMME features Nobel Laureates and prominent female leaders, teachers, activists and artists who use their gifts to help create a better world.
She is a recipient of the 2014 Human Spirit Award presented by Talent for Humanity, an international organization bringing light to individuals who dedicate their talents towards transforming societal realities for the common good. Their upcoming e-book profiles seven international humanitarian artists and will be released in mid-2014.
