Rime Salmi is a singer-songwriter whose work channels the fusion between her Moroccan heritage and Canadian upbringing. She sings in French, English, Spanish, and Arabic, weaving in rhythms from across the African continent and diaspora. Directed by Reda Lahmouid, the video for her cover of Warda’s “Batwanes Beek” features well-known dancers in the Montreal LGBTQ scene making the city their catwalk.  Rime joined us to discuss staying connected to her roots through music, becoming a more conscious ally to queer people in the MENA, releasing music in times of crisis, her upcoming tracks, and more.
