New York – American Singer, Jennifer Grout, the sensation of 2013 edition of Arabs’ Got Talent, is due to perform at Tagine restaurant tonight. Jennifer’s show is due to start at 7 pm.
In 2013, Jennifer Grout became one of the Arab World’s most popular sensations thanks to her performances at the Arabs’ Got Talent.
Arabs’ Got Talent’s jury and audience were surprised when they learned that Jennifer had not yet mastered Arabic; however, she fluently sang one of the most challenging songs of legendary Egyptian singer Oum Kalthoum.
“You don’t speak Arabic, yet you sing better than some Arab singers!” Najwa Karam, Lebanese star and member of AGT’s jury, said after Jennifer’s performance of Oum Kalthoum.
“We have for so long imitated the West, and this the first time that a person who has no whatsoever link to the Arab world, an American girl who does not speak Arabic, sings Arabic songs!,” added a bedazzled Najwa Karam.
Jennifer does not only sing in Arabic, she also sings in Tamazight, also known as Berber, the native language for many people in North Africa. Videos of her singing Tamazight songs went viral last year.
About Tagine Restaurant
Tagine restaurant, which was established in 2000 by Hamid Idrissi, a Moroccan-American and his partner and wife Toni Gallo, an American of Italian origin, is one of the few restaurants in New York that provides its customers with a delightful and original Moroccan food. What distinguishes it from other Moroccan restaurants is the home-made bread and different varieties of dishes it offers.
Over the past 12 years, chef Hamid and his wife Toni served an array of diverse communities, through several arteries in Tagine Dining Gallery. First, their cuisine, the only style of its kind in Manhattan, was artisanal, handcrafted from pickling to baking their own bread, encasing their own meat, poultry and fish. The owners of the restaurant re-engineered tagines (traditional Berber clay pottery) for commercial purposes, while introducing other Moroccan specialties to the landscape of restaurants that illuminate the streets of New York’s skyline.
