Album: Beyond the Trance (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • In a February 2011 interview with Socialist Worker, Iness Mezel said she wrote this song "about women struggling for their independence, to make choices about their lives and get education."

    This uptempo number loses nothing in translation, but neither does it gain anything.
  • Beyond the Trance is Mezel's third album. She sings in French and many of her songs, like this one, have North African tribal rhythms reflecting her heritage. This style of music is known as "Berber." >>
