But rather than relying on her father, Zakiya has pursued life and music on her own terms. In 1991 Zakiya made her first public appearance with her father, John Lee Hooker at the Kaiser Center Theatre in Oakland, California. Since that time Zakiya has gone on to peform on shows with Etta James, John Hammond, Taj Mahal, Charlie Musselwhite, Narada Michael Walden and many, many more. By 1993 Zakiya released her first CD "Another Generation Of The Blues" on Silverton Records
