Hind Hakki is a strong confident woman with a warm and gentle appearance. Her performance is powerful and fragile at the same time, a fascinating combination of social consciousness, determination and the street smart of a true MC. Hakki's live show, during which she delivers no-nonsense content without being overly confrontational, simply radiates. She’ll bring a warm fusion of hiphop, R&B and soul with Marroccan influences. Devoted to connection, Hakki's stage is her haven, the venue her home and the audience her new-found family.
