A star is born! Josephine Baker arrives in France, to captivate the Paris club scene.

On September 15th 1925 two dozen black musicians, singers and dancers sailed for France on the SS Berengaria. The ship arrived in France 7 days later. This was the start of Josephine Baker’s epic career.

Rehearsals for the first shows began immediately, and it was clear from the first days that Josephine Baker would soon leave the chorus and captivate the hearts of the Parisian socialites.

When we found Josephine”s former home in Marrakech we knew that the only name to truly reflect this iconic lady was Star! Riad Star is a beautiful luxurious place to stay, which holds a curated collection of memorabilia of the life of Josephine.

Join us and enjoy the spirit of style and fun!
