Moroccan of Saharan origin, Oum is immediately striking with her impressive blend of power and sensitivity. Through her sultry voice, she explores the diversity of Moroccan music that she colours with soul, Gnawa and Hassani rhythms. Oumʼs career started in her native Morocco with the release of her two first albums LikʼOum (2009) and Sweerty (2012).In 2013 she released the album Soul of Morocco in France, a superb synthesis of jaz and Moroccan music which received critical acclaim from French and international medias. In October 2014, she presented Soul of Morocco in WOMEX at Santiago-de-Compostella which really set off her international career allowing her to release the album in Germany and to play in prestigious festivals around Europe and the world.
