« Jidka » represents the way that the young woman chose to tell her story. She sings in her mother tongue – a dialect spoken in the Reer Xamar the neighbourhood of Mogadiscio. The result adds to the album a real mix of traditional and contemporary sounds. Most of her songs speak about the fight for subsistence in Somalia. Saba is joined by Taté Nsongan who plays the Djembé; by Taté Nsongan from Cameroon, who plays the guitars and the percussions, by the Senegalese Lao Kouyate who plays the kora as well as Felix Moungara, the singer.
