Morocco Girl-band success
Girl-band Tigresse Flow are feeling the first flushes of success in their homeland of Morocco.
Tigress Flow are a female rap group - a receptionist, air hostess and criminal lawyer - about to record their first album, shoot a video and, hopefully, launch a foreign tour.
They formed in 2005 and have played a few festival. Since then, they have had two hits: 'Maghribiyya' ('Moroccan Woman') and 'Kifach?' ('How?').
Islamist politicians have said that pop concerts encourage immoral behaviour, promiscuity and drinking - but Tigresse Flow do not advocate any such behaviour in their lyrics. Instead, they are more concerned to address the evils of violence and poverty - as well as advocate for women's rights.
Tigress Flow rap in Darija - but they are planning to record 'Mama Africa' in a mix of Darija, Spanish, French and English.
