Description

Running Time: 66 minutes
Country: Morocco/Netherlands
Cast: Najat Aatabou, Sena gourdoe, SÍNA Casita, Karima Lemghari, Farna El-Kadmiri.

Two generations of Moroccan singers meet in Amsterdam. Najat Aatabou, a celebrated ASTRE in the whole Arab world and remarkable woman, represents the first generation. Four Dutch singers of Moroccan descent represent the second generation. They are young and gifted, but they have to all contend with getting recognition and with identity problems. In the first place the confrontation with Najat Aatabou seems worsening; but a happy ending follows.

With this clandestinely recorded and illegally distributed song, Najat A‚tabou shocked the whole Morocco twenty years ago. Her parents shed tears and her brothers threatened to kill her. Najat A‚tabou fled from her birthplace, the village of Khemisset in the Central Atlas and lived in hiding for three years in Casablanca. She is now an established star throughout the Arab world.
