Chikha Rimiti dies ....

Chikha Rimiti has gone for ever.
She died of a heart attack in a Paris Hospital after 83. a very strong woman who struggled in many ways in an Islam-inspired patriarchal society. she sang and made her voice heard all over the world.
two days before she died, a big crwd of people wer enjoying her sound in Zineth, Paris. Di scribed as the God-mother of modern rai music, she never stopped giving these young artists the energy and inspiration to go on and say their word.
