Sister Fa

Sister Fa has become a pillar of the Senegalese hip hop scene, the best-known female rapper in the country and a role model for many young women. Her lyrics examine social, political and personal subjects, but she uses her music above all for her fight against the tradition of female genital mutilation.

 

 

Sister Fa entered this world in the early 80s in Dakar, the vibrating capital of Senegal. She took her first steps in music back in 2000 by getting acquainted with the local rap scene and recording her debut demo-tape.

Nourished on the energy and creativity of West Africa's Hip Hop metropolis, she injected these into her own music with inimitable artistic expression. Her urbane vitality has its roots in the Casamance in Senegal's south. Rich musical and cultural traditions from her family's native country have significantly influenced her artistic output, lending it a uniquely personal note. In 2005 her efforts were rewarded with her first Senegalese Hip Hop Award.

In January 2008 she organised the Education sans Mutilation (Education without Mutilation) tour to Senegal, taking the anti-FGM message directly to the people for three weeks.

Sister Fa works tirelessly for improvement in her native country, where she's a star. From her new base in the international sector of Berlin, equipped with her songs, winning temperament and a newborn daughter, Sister Fa is ready to spread the word to the world, sharing her tales from the flipside of paradise.
