Soultana, a popular rapper from Rabat, is a pioneer of Morocco's booming hip-hop scene and one of the country's first woman rappers. Her group, Tigresse Flow, won first prizes at youth festivals attracting over 500 young Moroccan musicians from throughout the country, and they received the prestigious Key Award from the Mawazine Festival in 2008. Since then, Soultana has carved out a solo career performing regularly at some of the country's top festivals.

Soultana is "old school," in that she is particularly known for rapping about social issues rather than material acquisition and fame. Her songs focus on women's issues and the challenges faced by her generation, particularly poverty, violence, and cultural matters.

This concert is her New York debut.
