Najat Aatabou

The feminist pop singer Najat Aatabou wowed some 10,000 fans, who danced and sang along to her songs in the vast Boujloud Square outside the Fez medina during a Sunday night public performance. Aatabou's often controversial songs question traditional values in Islamic societies, namely those involving women's rights and issues. Her 1993 hit ?Just Tell Me the Truth? brought her music to Western audiences when the Chemical Brothers sampled it for their 2005 hit ?Galvanize.?
