Sheva (שבע - Hebrew word for seven) is an Israeli world music band founded in 1997. While focusing on traditional Jewish and Arab musical influences, the band attempts to use spiritual and creative influences from across the world in their music. Sheva became well known for their song "Salaam" which was embraced by many youth groups for its message of peace.


SHEVA band members come from Muslim and Jewish backgrounds. The main theme in their songs is the call for peace in the Middle East and around the world.
