Birth name: Latifa Bint Alayah Al Arfaoui (Arabic: لطيفه بنت عليه العرفاوي).
Born: February 14, 1961 Manouba, Tunisia.
Latifa began her career at a very young age by becoming a prodigy at the age of six.
In 1983, shortly after her father died, Latifa and her family took a trip to Egypt to rest and mourn. During that time, Latifa met composer Baleegh Hamdi, who advised her that she ought to move to Egypt for the sake of her career. But Latifa wanted to concentrate on her education. She returned to Tunisia to finish her high school final exams. Due to financial issues, she couldn't go back to Egypt, so she attended college in Tunisia, studying Dutch literature for a year and a half. Her family decided to help her make her dream come true by sending her to Egypt, so Latifa quit college in Tunisia and joined the Arab Academy of Music in Egypt, from which she earned her bachelor degree. Even with her current busy schedule, Latifa is preparing for her master's degree.
Once when Latifa was singing live on a radio station, composer Mohammed Abdulwahab happened to hear her. Two days later he went to the Academy to find the girl he had heard on the radio. Latifa was speechless when she discovered he wanted to talk to her. At the time Latifa primarily performed long Tarab songs, but she was interested in doing something new. She began to work with composer Ammar Al Sherai'ei and poet Abdulwahab Mohammed, whom she met during her first visit to Egypt.
