JOWAN 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 and gathered a huge fan-base in the Arabic world.
Jowan is unafraid to speak his mind or tackle taboo subjects, which also courted controversy on several occasions: Previously investigated by Israeli police for “inciting terrorism”, his last tour to Jordan ended with his arrest and a night in prison. However, his 15-year- old son DON moved to his home shortly. Now, Jowan has to face a whole new challenge: on the one hand, he continues to fight for his ideals and his music, but at the same time he has to take paternal responsibility and offer his son a suitable environment.
