Remembering Clark Accord: A Bozanova in Arabic - Moroccon-Dutch Singer Teema & Orville Breeveld
Moroccon-Dutch singer Teema sings in Arabic "Moshta Aleek" ("Autumn Leaves") in Bozanova style accompanied by Surinamese-Dutch gitarist Orville Breeveld. It's a guest performance on the talk show of Anouscha Nzume en Clark Accord on the Amsterdam TV station AT5.
Teema is an Amsterdam based singer with Moroccan roots. She was a student at The Music School of Amsterdam, one of the vocalists of the Gospel World Choir and a member of the R’n B group “Damez”.
The group recorded several tracks and performed at festivals in Europe and in Canada. During the last couple of years she focuses more on her Arabic musical roots.
Clark Accord is a Dutch-Surinamese writer who died last Wednesday at the age of 50.
