The Musical Heritage of Morocco : Fatima Zahafa فاطمة الزحافة






Fatima Zahafa was a great Moroccan singer originally from Settat. Her fame is to be attributed, in ddition to the numerous songs engraved during her career, to the great success obtained by the song "Zaoiua" made in 1965. The Zouia (a Muslim religious building) to which the song refers is that of the town Of Sidi Smaïl located not far from Settat.
Though suffering from a serious disability, the singer did not spare and has been constantly performing during her life at celebrations, weddings and official events in her hometown.
As has often happened to other Moroccan artists she died in a state of extreme poverty in complete denial of the great artistic contribution she has given to her country







Fatima Zahafa è stata una grandissima cantante marocchina originaria della città di Settat. La sua fama è da imputarsi, oltre che alle numerose canzoni incise nel corso della sua carriera, al grande successo ottenuto dal brano “ Zaoiua” realizzato nel 1965. La Zouia ( un edificio religioso musulmano) a cui fa riferimento il brano è quella della cittadina di Sidi Smaïl situata non lontano da Settat.
Pur se affetta da una grave disabilità la cantante non si risparmiata e si è esibita costantemente nel corso della sua vita in feste, matrimoni ed eventi ufficiali della sua città natale.
Come molto spesso è capitato ad altri artisti marocchini è deceduta in una condizione di estrema povertà in totale spregio al grande contributo artistico che ha dato alla sua terra.
