Homage to Magool is a unique concert that brings together some of the most popular Somali singers to present the music of Somalia’s legendary singer, Magool on the 10th anniversary of her death.

From Magool’s beginnings in Somalia’s most popular band, Waaberi to solo work and self-imposed exile her life and struggles have mirrored those of her compatriots. Her return from exile was celebrated with a sell-out show in the national stadium, still the largest concert in Somali history. The greatest poets wrote for her and even today the biggest stars sing her songs.

Farxiya Fiska is considered by many to have the greatest voice of her generation. For this tour she will go back to the roots of modern Somali music, Qaraami; an Afro-Eastern fusion performed by solo voice and oud (a middle eastern lute). Often featuring epic poems this style became popular across the Horn of Africa in the 50’s and 60’s. Joining her on the bill is Nimco Degan, has one of the most authentic voices in Somali music and respected by the old and young alike.

In the second half of the performance Farxiya Fiska and Nimco Degan will perform their own hits.
