If you’d like to know more about Kouka there’s an article on the Movie Musical World website that details her career and her connection with US actor and singer Paul Robeson. You can find the article at http://movie-musical-world.blogspot.com/2011/07/kouka-la-sultane-du-desert.html The article is in French but there’s a translation available.
Trivia: Kouka also starred in a film a few years later which was titled ‘Queen of the Desert’. The two films are often confused.
