Sarra Douik is a vocalist and Oud player from Tunisia. Her multi-faceted and open-minded approach allows her to seamlessly integrate the sounds of Tunisian and Arab music with other musical worlds. Born into a musical family, and a student of great masters like Zouhaier Belheni, Bechir Gharbi and Alia Sellami, Sarra established a deep bond with her musical origins, which she has represented internationally in contests and tours all over North Africa, Europe and the U.S.A.

Besides, in recent years she was chosen to be part of artistic residencies such as OneBeat in the U.S.A. and in Algeria which offered her the opportunity to collaborate with Juliano Abramovay and Andrea Hoyos to record her first composition “Netfakker” and to publish it in March 2019, as well as Medinea (MEDiterranean INcubator of Emerging Artists) in Tunisia and in France where she created and performed original music with artists coming from all the Mediterranean. She is currently studying Jazz singing at the Conservatory of Vicenza (Italy) and is dedicated to searching for a truer form of self-expression through music.
