Malouma Mint Moktar Ould Meidah (Arabic: المعلومة بنت الميداح) was born in the sixties in Mederdra (Trarza), into a family of griots. Her life seemed all mapped out. The daughter of Moktar Ould Meidah, a prominent traditional musician as well as a highly skilled poet, she is also the granddaughter of Mohamed Yahya Ould Boubane, another virtuoso of words and the tidinit (a small traditional guitar used by griots). She grew up in Charatt (a small town near Mederdra), where her parents taught her the basics of traditional harp playing. (Last.fm)
