About the Artist

French-Moroccan singer/composer/producer Malika Zarra is a multi-cultural shape-shifter who leaps effortlessly between seemingly unconnected languages and traditions. With her beautiful sinuous mezzo-soprano voice, she demonstrates a rare ability to communicate both powerful and subtle ideas and feelings in Berber, Moroccan Arabic, French, and English. She has performed all around the world, including at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York, and has collaborated with international artists such as John Zorn, Makoto Ozone, David Gilmore and many others.
