KHANSA BATMA (Morocco) at the Hayy Festival TONIGHT

Tonight, Friday August 02, 2013 at 9:00 PM the Moroccan singer KHANSA BATMA will perform at the Geneina Theatre in Al Azhar Park in the framework of Mawred's Hayy Festival.

Khansaa Batma was born in Casablanca. She joined the Casablanca Conservatoire at the age of nine. The kick start of her career was a 2001 debut album entitled “Sharq wa Gharb” which featured folkloric Moroccan songs with European sounding arrangement, and international folklore songs with Moroccan instrument arrangement. In 2003, she released her second album “Ala Abwab El Sahra” or (On the gates of the Desert). This album describes a lost soul’s journey from Spain to Sudan and through North Africa. Her third album “The Dark Album” achieved huge commercial success among the youth; songs like “Barano”, “Gharani” and “Nestahel” were very popular. Batma’s songs bring together Arabic and Moroccan rhythms blended with Rock.

Tickets are available online at:
