“I dream the arrangements and vocals; the melodies tend to come of their own volition without any great effort on my part. I work instinctively, without putting anything down in writing.” – Hindi Zahra

Zahra loves to tell stories—but only about her own lived experience—in her music. She has garnered comparisons to Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, and Patti Smith. With a little bit of blues, jazz, and unorthodox folk, Zahra has arranged her entire debut album herself. Zahra will be making waves during October’s CMJ festival in New York. We caught up with the up-and-coming artist on the influence of movie music, the steps for creating songs and why she chose to sing in English for most of her album.

INTERNATIONAL INFLUENCES: It’s a mix of different music, because I was born in Morocco and we are used to listening to a lot of different kinds of music—especially to cinema and TV, because we had a lot of Egyptian films, but also Indian films and also Hollywood films. Jazz, rock, Oriental, too. It’s Africa. We have all the African music. So, I really get focused on black music coming from America, Oriental music coming from Egypt and also from south Morocco; it’s the Desert Blues, what we call the “rock of the desert.”

BEING HONORED BY COMPARISONS: The first one was Billie Holiday, but I thought that it was too much. First, because I heard a lot of Ella Fitzgerald more than Billie Holiday. Also, because the voice of Billie Holiday is tortured. It’s a voice that you can feel all of the things that she’s done to her body. So, I didn’t think we had the same voice, but I was very honored for that comparison. After the concert, people wanted to compare me to Janis Joplin, which I am so surprised about, because I don’t listen to Janis Joplin at all. And I don’t think I sound like her, but it’s the mystery of it. People hear something in my music. The most beautiful one was, I think, the “African Patti Smith.” It was when we played in London.
