The muses of La musa: Hindi Zahra

Hindi Zahra is a Franco-Moroccan singer and actress. When coming up with a stage name, she simply inverted her birth name. Her songs are mostly in English but some lyrics as in the song “Imik Si Mik” are in the Berber language.

Influenced by singers like Cheikha Rimitti, Hindi Zahra has drawn comparisons with Beth Gibbons of PortisheadManu ChaoBillie HolidayPatti Smith, and Norah Jones. In April 2015 her second studio album Homeland was released.
