Batoul El Merouani represents the melodious airs coming straight from the South. This native of Layoune has revolutionized Hassani Chant (a music and chant genre that developed in the deep South) formerly exclusively performed by men. Encouraged by her father, an artist well known in the South of Morocco, Batoul has insufflated new dynamism into this art in order to make it known in all of the Kingdom’s Regions. She has managed to modernize an ancient repertoire without denaturing them. This has earned her wide recognition on the part of major Moroccan artistic events.
