Inspiration of the Day: Hindi Zahra – Beautiful Tango

January 27, 2010

Hindi Zahra

Berber singer, Hindi Zahra‘s voice is incredibly beautiful. I’ve been getting lost in her songs lately, so I had to share.

‘Influenced by the great Maghreb singers and the Egyptian divas, Hindi was brought up on traditional Berber music and also the local rock’n’roll her musician uncles played. Other early influences were Ali Farka Touré’s Sahara blues and the folk sounds of Ismaël Lô. The young Hindi also listened to African-American music (“anything with a groove”), as well as Bob Marley.’ – RFI Musique

“Beautiful Tango” is from her debut album, Hand made. The song is just as enchanting as its accompanying video. You must listen:
