His exuberant character and attitude impede frank indeed in some circles... It could be an eccentric character of Almodóvar, or one of those muses troubling that one crosses in old movies Fassbinder.
Meanwhile, Biyouna continues a singing career and released in 2001 an album of songs Raid Zone, directed by the composer John Bagnolett. After the success of the album Raid Zone and her participation in the role of Fellag Casbah Opera to be staged by Jérôme Savary, Biyouna released a new album Blonde dans la Casbah.
