Widad Mjama

(Shouka I Marocco)

Widad Mjama is the very first female rapper in the Maghreb. In her music, she builds a bridge between an ancestral Moroccan tradition and modern music. She began by collecting information from chikhates, the women who have been transmitting «la aïta» since the dawn of time, a song in dialectal Arabic with a great freedom of tone, feminist before the term emerged, which allows them to shout out the forbidden and denounce injustice.
