Tania Saleh won the German Record Critics' Award for the "10 A.D." album

Tania Saleh creates sweet melodies for bitter times. The »A.D.« designates a personal notch on the Lebanese draftsman and songwriter’s lifeline, meaning: »after divorce«. Life as an independent woman in a patriarchal culture is not easy, even under normal circumstances. For a divorced woman, the situation becomes overwhelming. Saleh tells of anger and pain but with hope and self-assured pride. Ten emotional storms, packed in careful acoustic accompaniment with cleverly placed electronic accents. For the jury: Jodok W. Kobelt
