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.
