This biography of Afghan singer Mozhdah Jamalzadam creates a narrative rather than a series of facts and isolated episodes. The style makes for a more engaging audio performance, immersing the listener in the experiences of the real-life political and cultural influencer. Julia Farhat is a capable enough narrator, inserting sufficient animation to keep the story imaginable. While her accents and pronunciations are seamless, Farhat maintains a halting pace that often makes the narrative difficult to follow and keeps the story at arm's length. Jamalzadam is a child as the biography opens, escaping with her family from Afghanistan to Pakistan, then on to Canada. From uncertain beginnings, Jamalzadam becomes a singer and media personality who uses her position to fight for women's rights in Afghanistan.
