jamila & the other heroes

We are



Jamila & The Other Heroes are the new, wild and lively band based in Berlin that have come together to create a raw, energetic and funkadelic music that makes you fly.

Leading the band is the vibrant Jamila Al-Yousef. Born in Berlin on the day the wall came down, and raised by her influential Palestinian refugee father, Jamila’s cultural activism and strong will to positively change the world is drawn deep into her artistic expression. In their songwriting JAMILA & THE OTHER HEROES merge Neo-Soul, Funk, Rock and Arab Folklore, highlighting the musicians’ diverse cultural influences from the Middle East, Latin America and East Europe. Their Debut EP „CHANGE“ was released in 2017 and invites everyone who yearn to discover their inner heroes to make the world a greater place. Currently the band works on their Debut Album „Ween beitna“ to be released in Fall 2019.
