Her previous release, "Mirrors of My Soul" (2005), has been well-received around the globe, opening doors for Rim Banna to the USA, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, India, the Arabic world and Scandinavia
Her collaboration with KKV started with "Lullabies from the Axis of Evil" (2004). The impression she made on producer Erik Hillestad when she sang a lullaby for him in her house in Nazareth had such an impact that it landed her a recording contract.
Her many fans have been eagerly awaiting her new record, and now it is finally here. She performs with the same band, featuring Eivind Aarseth (guitar), Gjermund Silset (bass), Rune Arnesen (drums) and David Wallumrød (keyboards), in addition to her husband Leonid Aleixenco (acoustic guitar). This time Rim gives us a selection of new Palestinian love songs. The title, "Seasons of Violet", reflects the lilac, a violet flower which in Palestine is a symbol of love. All the songs have been composed by Rim together with Leonid Aleixenco, while Rims mother has written some of the lyrics.

Most CDs have been
imported from Europe or Asia.
They are not all
shrink-wrapped, and I am not
going to con you by wrapping them
here just to make you think they
have been sterilized in America.
We guarantee that the CDs and the
contents are all brand new and in
perfect condition. Whenever I
can, I use recycled shipping
materials. They may not look as
pretty on the outside, but they save
money and keep the trash dumps a
little bit emptier.
