Google Doodle choose today the 28 of October, to celebrate the Moroccan chaabi music star Haja El Hamdaouia who was influenced by her own different style from generations of artists.
Google tweeted, “Haja El Hamdaouia was one of the first Moroccan singers to perform in front of an orchestra”, and choose to end its article about her by, “Thank you, Haja El Hamdaouia, for singing your heart out time and time again”.
Haja El Hamdaouia comes from a family that loves music, her father was hosting oftentimes music troupes at their home because of his love for musicians, the thing that inspired her to learn to sing and perform chaabi music by taking theatre classes.
The Moroccan singer was distinguished in El Aita Al Marsaouiya after she developed it in the 1950s in her own way and sang about so many topics including national independence.
For over than 60 years, El Hamdaouia continued to create and perform music, and “Daba Yij” and “Jiti Majiti” are some of her most popular songs, especially “Hiya Hiya” which became popular in the world after Majed sang it.
