Manal – 3ARI | A COLORS SHOW
Since dropping her debut single ‘Denia’ in 2015, Moroccan singer Manal Benchlikha (aka Manal) has attracted international attention with her unique musical style on tracks like ‘Koulchi Ban’, ‘Slay’, and ‘Pas Le Choix’. Last year, Manal released her debut album ‘360’, which includes the hit ‘Niya’ along with standout singles ‘3iytou Lbouliss’, ‘Call Me’ and ‘360’. For her COLORS performance, Manal shares a moving rendition of her latest single ‘3ARI’, which originally dropped on International Women’s Day. Blending together reggaeton and Arabic percussion with fragile piano melodies and haunting strings, ‘3ARI’ tells “a sad but true story” about domestic violence in Morocco. Manal’s powerful words offer a beacon of strength and hope for women all around the world. To quote her lyrics: “It’s time to speak”. Watch the full performance of ‘3ARI’ above. Please note, the fur coat Manal wears in her show is 100% vegan.
