About Sababa 5

Sababa 5 burst onto the music scene in 2016, embarking on a captivating global musical journey. The band’s dynamic fusion of genres and influences has continuously pushed boundaries, collaborating with artists from diverse corners of the globe. Drawing inspiration from wrecking crew recordings of the ’60s to analog Middle Eastern music of the ’70s, Sababa 5’s sound constantly evolves across different genres and rhythms, always maintaining a groove-centric foundation.

Their music blends Mediterranean rhythms and melodies with elements of rock and psychedelic funk, creating a unique fusion of East and West.

Between 2016 and 2022, Sababa 5 released instrumental tracks and collaborated with a range of vocalists, achieving significant success with their single “Tokyo Midnight \ Nasnusa” featuring Japanese singer Yurika.

In the summer of 2022, the band released a four-song EP in collaboration with Yemenite singer Shiran Ztfira under Batov Records, garnering attention on global radio stations and from audiences worldwide.

September 2022 marked the release of their long-awaited self-titled album of original instrumentals, showcasing their distinct mix of Middle Eastern psych, funk, and disco groove. Following the album release, Sababa 5 embarked on a European tour, including a show at the Trans Musicales Festival in Rennes.

In 2023, the band released a live video session recorded at Anis Auditorium in Jaffa and several singles featuring different vocalists. In November 2023, they released their second album “Aspan” on Batov Records, followed by a European tour in early 2024.

This year, Sababa 5 unveiled new music, including a single featuring Japanese singer Yurika Hanashima, which serves as a teaser for their upcoming album set to debut later this summer.
