Berlin Première:
Victoria Hanna


A group of girls in the clothes of Orthodox Jewish schoolgirls stands facing the wall in front of a blackboard. Victoria Hanna stands in front of it in the middle, singing with her eyes closed and her hands in front of her chest.

The video of her first single became a viral hit on Youtube: Aleph Bet (Hoshana) is a prayer for the rain, part of the Hoshanot prayers arranged like the alphabet. The video was directed by Asaf Korman; photo: Gustavo Jagorsky

Victoria Hanna, Israel’s most dazzling musician of the moment, is finally coming to Berlin! Her songs are works of art – Aramaic hip-hop, cabbalistic rap and spoken-word performances.

Victoria Hanna moves between ancient music and contemporary beats, between philosophical and religious texts. Various vocal and language techniques characterize her compositions. She explores the limits of vocal sound, plays with letters, recites the Aleph-Bet. She skips, exuberates, and beguiles.

Victoria Hanna is named after her grandmothers – courageous and rebellious Victoria, devoted and protective Hanna. She named her debut album – in which she works with the Hebrew texts of her childhood – after these two women. The first part, Victoria, focuses on the rhythmic power of language and letters and the second part, Hanna, on the voice. Even though Victoria Hanna, the daughter of a Jerusalem rabbi, fought her way into the world outside religion – the Jewish Orthodox tradition has remained her inspiration and the subject of her artistic exploration.

Victoria Hanna’s debut was released in 2017 and was one of Israel's best-selling albums of the year.
