St. Aug Students Meet Moroccan Hip Hop Star
Thanks to English Professor Lucy Melbourne, students at Saint Augustine’s University were able to talk by Skype with Soultana, the most recognized female rapper in Africa. Dr. Melbourne, through her Fulbright fellowship and continuing connections to Morocco, arranged for the session.
Soultana and her band won Morocco’s biggest amateur music competition a few years back and promptly became the most recognized female rap group in Africa. Soultana raps about the challenges facing women in this North African country: illiteracy, poverty, domestic violence, and daily harassment on the street.
Soultana’s real name is Youssra Oukaf and she’s 27. She walks a fine line, calling for change in Morocco without criticizing the King. You can also see excerpts from this video on Youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj47PM0w5OI
