Bi Kidude : la mémoire de la musique zanzibaraise (Zanzibara 4)

Bi Kidude («the Little Thing») born Fatma Bint Baraka, started to sing in the twenties. In 2005 she was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award at Womex. An emblematic taarab singer, she switched to msondo (female initiation songs) for a while before returning to the taarab in the fashionable post-World-War-2 women’s clubs. The recordings presented here span the last twenty years of her career. She is accompanied by various ensembles, among them the famous Culture Musical Club, Zanzibar Taarab All Stars and Afro Arab Groove.
