Awesta Darhwesh (also known as Awiwa) is a DJ/producer of electronic music, living in Rotterdam. While spending the biggest part of his life in the Netherlands, Awiwa was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. He and his family moved to the Netherlands in 1998 and this is where his educational path started.
Being educated as an audio/visual-technician has a great influence on his musical approach. During his studies, Awiwa learned the proper techniques to handle the gear he now uses to create his tracks. Inspired by artists such as Chris Liebing, K!NK and Gaiser, Awiwa also learned how to convert his skill into playing hybrid DJ-sets. His sets contain a varied mix of genres such as Minimal, Techno and Ambient.
