Yolla Khalife is a French-Lebanese singer. She started her career by taking part in the creation of the group “Al Mayadine” with Lebanese composer and oud master Marcel Khalife. Yolla Khalife participated in many Arabic, European and American tours and several Lebanese and international festivals. In the meantime, she developed her own taste and conception of art. She combined singing with the body expression, making the art the language of the soul.
