Born in 1965 in Kenitra, the Moroccan Diva, Latifa Raafat, came to the fore in the early 80’s. In 1982, she recorded her first song, Mawwal Al-Hob (A Love Song in colloquial language). In 1985, she won the Moroccan Song Prize, with the great single, Khouyi (Little Brother). As an emblematic figure in Moroccan song, Latifa Raafat has one of the most enchanting discographies, with such titles as Maghyara (Envious Am I), Dunia (O World), Al-Hamdu Li-Lah (Praise be to Allah), Ya Hli Ya `Ashrani (O my Folk, O my Kin), and Ana fi Arak Ya Yamma (Shield me against Disgrace, O Mother). Thanks to her songs, Arab countries have discovered and appreciated Moroccan dialect.
