Aviv was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, on 9 October 1974. She was named Dina on birth but her parents changed her name after a few days to Din Din. Her parents are both artists; her mother, Aliza Aviv, is a performing singer in a wide range of styles, her father was a jazz musician, and as a child she recorded an album, Alidin,[1] with her mother and accompanied her father when he performed.

She is a graduate of Alliance High School and served in the Israeli army as the solo singer for the Air Force Entertainment Group.[2] She studied dance and ballet at the Israel School of Ballet and with Dorit Gasner, African dance with Master Aisha Diallo, Indian song and Tabla drum playing in India, African drumming with Uri Nave, congas with master Avi Zarfati, and piano and two years of drum and voice studies at the Rimon School of Music.[3]

She gave "Rhythm in Dance" workshops at Seminar Hakibbutzim and her popular children's video, "Din Din's Heart Drum," introduced many Israeli families to the world of rhythm.[3] She presents a world music program with her mother, Aliza Aviv, in which they both sing in Turkish, Kurdish, Greek, Bulgarian, Georgian, Persian and Hebrew.[3] She is a chosen artist of the Israel Cultural Excellence Foundation (IcExcellence), which aims to support artistic talent in Israel.[3]

Musical work

As an adult, Aviv joined Gaya,[4] a leading Israeli band, who had a hit song, Shir La'Ahava (Yachad), which received the Discovery of the Year Award and has become an unofficial second national anthem for many Israelis.[3] She then joined the Idan Raichel Project,[4] and was the lead singer on the hit song Im Telech (If You Leave).

After her success with Gaya and the Idan Raichel Project, she released a successful solo album, Sodotay (My Secrets) in spring 2006, for which she received the "Discovery of the Year" award from ACUM (The Composers, Authors and Publishers Society of Israel) and a Gold Album award in April 2007.[3] The three songs from the album released as singles (Familiar To Me From Once, Dreaming (ft. Mush Ben Ari) and Sodotay (My Secrets)) all reached the top three of the charts. The single Sodotay (My Secrets) was nominated for Song of the Year at the annual Israeli Music Channel Awards in March 2007.[5] Aviv received the Best Artist in Music award from the Israel Ministry of Culture, the nation’s highest cultural award, in 2007,[6][7] and embarked on her first US tour in March 2008,[8] performing in Tulsa, New York City, Sarasota, Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton.[9][10]
