a wonderful ambassador...

Malika Zarra, Moroccan vocalist, was a wonderful ambassador for her country’s music. She sang in native Moroccan, French, and English, with a healthy dose of scat. The music was similar to Afro-Caribbean, Flamenco, and Greek genres, with exotic percussion, and vocal dynamics that intensified as the evening grew late. Dr. Roberta E. Zlokower


bewitched forever..

"Malika Zarra's voice is like a gentle sigh of Zephyr in a hot Moroccan night. It awakes the deepest feelings of love and harmony. Even the hidden desires of a burning passion. It reminds the mellow blending of oriental flavors and western anxiety of a Cole Porter song: It brings back a night of tropical splendor...
Once you've heard her sweet spell, you're bewitched forever." Enzo Capua


genuinely pure and straight ...

”I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it !
It’s really refreshing to hear music that is genuinely pure and straight from the heart which is how music is coming off here in my opinion.
I really like your sound, sense of time and phrasing”… Taxi
