Edition Hawara (c) Patrick Wollner




Edition Hawara is a record label run by three friends and music lovers from Vienna. “Hawara” is originally derived from the Yiddish word chawer and means “friend(s)”, “lover” or simply “guy” in Viennese dialect. The word nicely captures how a local way of life or relating to each other can be entwined with a larger, border-crossing history. Our label takes inspiration from this, focusing on re-issuing long-forgotten musical obscurities from Austria that are local and quirky, yet also resonate beyond a particular place and time.
