The „Beautiful Tango“ singer will perform in Belgrade this September!
As always, Musicology has chosen an artist that had already performed in Belgrade to open this year’s season. It’s the world-renowned French-Moroccan songwriter and singer, Hindi Zahra! She will perform at the famous Bitefartcafe club on September 28 and 29, after opening the tour in Zagreb and Ljubljana.
Hindi Zahra has won prestigious awards such as „Constantin“ and „Victoires de la Musique“. She’s a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and songwriter that puts all her musical influences and life experiences into an authentic musical creation.

to move to Marrakech in search of her personal and musical identity, devoting
herself completely to creating music. In search of her both musical and
personal identity, she decided to move alone to Marrakech, devoting herself
completely to spirituality and finding new paths to her music. She calls this
travel “a real descent into solitude” which gave birth to songs
created in ecstasy, mixed with feelings of melancholy and says: „My experience there was something
special – five years of constant introspection, contemplation and work led me
to where I am today! For that, I’m forever grateful. “
When it comes
to Zahra, everything is based on true, raw emotion and experience: „Everything that happens to someone in
life, the good or the bad, leaves a trace, transforming one’s personality, and
with that, their creative side. I believe that it was the hardest parts of my
life the ones that changed me the most. “

compositions are going in direction of different music genres that are
intertwining but have lost their names, carried by the overwhelming tempo that
marked this album. Hindi’s songs, although always followed by an adventuristic
note, remain melancholic and ecstatic.
After Hindi held a sold-out concert in Belgrade 2 years ago, she said that the connection she felt with the Belgrade audience was mesmerizing, adding that she can’t wait to experience it all again. After the new season-opening, the next artist to perform at Musicology Barcaffe Sessions will be the virtuous guitar player from „Vulfpeck“, Cory Wong, who will have a concert on the 7th of November at Bitefartcafe club.
