Watch & Listen
Ever since the release of her debut solo album Ya Nass (2013), Yasmine
Hamdan's personal, modern take on Arabic pop has been getting tremendous
attention in Europe and America, as well as in North Africa and the Middle East
(where she's enjoyed iconic stature since the days of Soapkills, the duet she had
founded in Beirut, which was one of the first indie/electronic bands in the Middle
While Yasmine's vocals are definitely connected to traditions of Arabic music (to
which she takes an unconventional and fresh approach), the structures and
arrangements of the songs are very remote from its codes, and take in elements
from contemporary Western electronic, pop and folk music.
Her unique vision is fully realised in her second solo album "Al Jamilat" ("The
Beautiful Ones"), which she jointly produced with UK producers Luke Smith and
Leo Abrahams, and recorded with contributions from NY musicians Shahzad
Ismaily and Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley.
