23/12/13 – Yasmine Hamdan – Beirut – 2013

Yasmine Hamdan

Yasmine Hamdan is Lebanese living in Paris and this is a track from her first solo album, Ya Nass. In the video she moves with Arabic grace and sings sensually about Beirut – one imagines it is a love song to her place of birth. Between 2001-2005 she was part of electronic duo Soap Kills with Zeid Hamdan (not related), making three albums. She has found a way to incorporate acoustic and electronic elements into her music, along with a new look at Arabic music with traditional and modern elements drawing on Arab and Western influences.
