Naima Samih

Rmani Rih

Naima Samih (نعيمة سميح) was born in the Derb Essultan suburb of Casablanca, Morocco. She has been referred to as “Edith Piaf of Morocco”. Naima Samih was one of the first female singers to gain prominence in the late Sixties and early Seventies when the field was generally limited only to men.

She began singing at the age of nine, leaving school to pursue a career in music. In the early 1970s, Naima Samih participated to Abdelkader Rachdi talent show « Mawahib » winning applause from both the jury and the audience. During her career of over three decades, she has collaborated many Moroccan songwriters and composers – including Abdou el Omari.

The song “Zifaf Filfada” – which was also arranged by Abdou el Omari – was included on the second volume of the Waking Up Scheherazade compilations.

Catalog number GB171 on Disques Gam of Casablanca, Morocco. Released 1977.
