Tunisian musician Raoudha Abdallah is to deliver a concert as part of the ongoing Hayy festival.

Abdallah launched her first solo music project titled Asrar in April 2014, aspiring to reintroduce Tunisian and West African music heritage.

Originally from the Tunisian city of Gabes, Abdallah began her music career with the Al-Takht for Arabic Music ensemble.

In 1999, she won the Best Voice Award at the Gabes World Music Day competition.

Abdallah performed at the opening of Carthage International Festival in 2011 and also at the first year anniversary celebration of the Tunisian Revolution ‘Doaa’ in January 2012.

Accompanying Abdallah will be her band, including Osama Al Mehidi (piano), Ateel Maawi (violin), Ziad Lakoud on (bass) and Lotfi Sowa (percussion).
