Actress-turned-vocalist Saba Anglana was created in Mogadishu, the administrative centre of Somalia, during General Muhammad Siyad Barre’s oppressive regime. Because of the family’s mixed-marriage position (Saba’s dad was Italian, and her mom a Somalia-born Ethiopian), the Anglanas had been pressured to flee towards the father’s homeland when Saba was five years of age. Anglana was thereafter elevated in Italy, ultimately rising to nationwide prominence being a tv celebrity, but her Somali root base remained a significant focus. She examined the indigenous vocabulary with her mom, particularly the local dialect of Xamar Weyne, and linked to her indigenous nation through music. Jidka: The Series marked her single debut in 2007, blending the traditional noises of Anglana’s house country with modern flourishes.
