Sababa 5 & Yaara Shaulian - Dreams of Love


Sababa 5 & Yaara Shaulian – Dreams of Love

“Dreams of Love” is a fresh collaboration between Sababa 5 and singer Yaara Shaulian. This oriental pop ballad, with a smooth six-eight rhythm, tells a story of distant love and longing. Sababa 5 creates a captivating musical atmosphere with strong and dramatic music led by powerful synth lines from Eitan Drabkin. Yaara’s gentle vocals gracefully float above, resulting in a beautiful blend of strength and delicacy. Together, they craft a musical journey that not only sounds good but also touches the heart and soul.

Sometimes a song takes unexpected turns. Ilan says, “I started with a sketch inspired by a Persian melody during my collaboration with Liraz Charchi on her second album. After setting it aside, I joined forces with Elana Sasson to revive the tune, infusing it with a new melody and adding beautiful Persian lyrics. Unfortunately, we couldn’t finish the recording with Elana. That’s when I approached Yaara, inviting her to write Hebrew lyrics and lend her voice, giving the song a fresh perspective.”

In the same way as Sababa 5’s fusion of timeless and contemporary elements, Yaara navigates a similar path, bridging the gap between the classical and the modern.
After the release of her debut album in 2020, blending Persian tunes with electronic beats, she entered the studio with super producer Tamir Muscat to create a new album set to release later this year.
