ValleyMusings is a bi-monthly series profiling the role of fashion in music. It is our two cents on the most original styles circumventing the dynamic world of music. The series is kicking off with a feature on Moroccan-French musician and singer, Hindi Zahra.
The singer’s first album was released in 2010 on the jazz powerhouse label, Blue Note Records- co-founded by Alfred Lion, a figure described by music historians and industry professionals as having been “a walking, living catalyst.” (NB. Hip-hop producer, Madlib, paid homage to Lion and his label with a brilliant 2003 remix album aptly titled, “Shades of Blue”.)
With a résumé that includes work experience at the Louvre, Hindi Zahra’s excursions into the art world at the tender age of eighteen have left an indelible mark on her identity, both musically and aesthetically. She resembles a modern day Frida Kalho meets Berber boho chic.
Zahra‘s style fits like a hand in a glove with ValleyDez‘s own unique identity:
Her music is a crossover of jazz and soul accompanied by folk-inspired guitar arrangements. Below is a link to one of her most well-known songs, Stand Up:
ValleyDez is all about cultivating individuality. So get ready to be blown away by this series and so much more!
