Portugal/Palestine: Mina - "Betti Sahranah"

Mina (مينا)

Mina (مينا) means “port” in Arabic, and it’s the name of a unique new band whose members actually could have met in one of many ports of the Mediterranean Sea – somewhere in the middle between Portugal and Palestine, their home countries.

Mina’s two marvellous singers, Sophia Portugal (naturally from Portugal) and Terez Sliman (from Palestine), are accompanied by three Portugese musicians: Rui Ferreira, Helder Costa and Ricardo Coehlo.

Together they not only enhance each other’s cultures and music influences – from traditional music to modern jazz – but also life experiences, emotions and dreams. Just like in their beautiful song “Betti Sahrana”, a story about lovers from Tunisia, one with no happy ending:
