"Moroccan vocalist and world music star, Malika Zarra"


This Moroccan lass honed her craft at home in North Africa, in Paris, and continues to do so in USA. It’s a very impressive CD and should place her in a good position for further “world-jazz” adventures.


Morrocan-born Zarra conveys a strong sense of her North African roots through the vocals and arrangements. Fans of Susheela Raman and Natacha Atlas, or those looking for something like them but leaning a bit more toward jazz, should be sure to check out this strong debut.
