Raised in Europe, fluent in the musical traditions of the Middle East and of African-Americans, Marie Daulne founded Zap Mama, an all-female a-cappella group, to sing tunes inspired by the music of the world. The contrast is lively and almost shocking on Adventures in Afropea I (1993). Percussions were added for Sabsylma (1994), and 7 (1997) was a blatant pop crossover, while A Ma Zone (1999) was a more intriguing fusion of modern and ancient, western and ethnic.

Supermoon (2007) recycled Zap Mama's ebullient ethnic soul-jazz-pop stew with a totally different line-up that only kept Daulne of the original members.
