    Abstract:
    The article examines Moroccan professional female singer-dancers (shikhat) in relation to other professional female performers . An analysis of the role that women have as entertainers, and in particular of their behavior in the course of performance, will show how they affect the status of each class of performers. Sketching a panorama of the professional musical activities of women in Morocco allows us to contextualize the shikhat, to identify their uniqueness or likeness to the other performers and consequently reach a better understanding, at least in a musical context, of the reasoning behind their disreputability.
