Ghalia Benali (Tunisia)

A singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, and visual artist, her name has also been synonymous with the gift of storytelling and her spellbinding presence that captivates from the moment she steps foot on stage. Her work is deeply influenced by her southern Tunisian upbringing and love for Arab legendary icons, which she has combined with her mystical and spiritual art and the musical cultures of flamenco and Romas of Rajasthan. Benali has also worked on numerous international projects and has released 10 albums, such as her autobiographical musical Romeo and Leila, Om Kalthoum, and her most recent In the Footsteps of Rumi. More recently, she also founded MWSOUL Art Foundation, a non-profit establishment that aims at raising awareness by reviving and connecting authentic cultural roots through multidisciplinary arts.
