owan Safadi, born as Palestinian in the State of Israel, is a famous musician and a true free spirit. With his band Fish Samak, he delivers songs ranging from the political and social to the emotional and philosophical. Gathering a huge fan-community in the Arabic world., Jowan is unafraid to speak his mind or tackle taboo subjects. His lyrics, at once penetrating and witty, have also courted controversy on several occasions: Previously investigated by Israeli police for “inciting terrorism”, his last tour to Jordan ended with his arrest and an overnight stay in a Jordanian prison cell. But this is just the beginning: standing for co-resistance instead of co-existence and criticizing the stare society he lives in, Jowan struggles for his ideals – at any price.
