RIP Bi Kidude

Fatuma binti Baraka (aka Bi Kidude) was a Zanzibari Taarab singer. She was considered the undisputed queen of Taarab and Unyago music and was also a protégé of Siti binti Saad........ Bi Kidude was born in the village of Mfagimaringo, she was the daughter of a coconut seller in colonial Zanzibar. Bi Kidude's exact date of birth is unknown, much of her life story is uncorroborated, giving her an almost mythical status.
