Yasmin Ibrahim Mohamed was born in Sudan. A vocalist and songwriter, Yasmin arrived in Australia in 2005, and started performing with her Australian group Fanous the same year. She performs African music, blending traditional songs and improvisation with modern styles. Her eclectic repertoire also includes reggae and samba.
Yasmin’s music inspires audiences of all ages and nationalities with its warmth, depth and beauty. Listeners who have never before heard Sudanese music crowd the dance floor at her concerts, entranced by the hypnotic combination of gorgeous melody, soaring voice, and irresistible rhythm.
Fanous includes experienced Australian and African musicians playing bass, guitar, drums, African percussion and vocals. The music is a combination of strong, exciting African rhythms and melodies with a beautiful western flavour, blending together in rich harmonic tones. Yasmin is a charming and beautiful singer who captivates the hearts of any audience. In January 2012, Yasmin released her debut album, accompanied by a successful music tour.
In Sudan, Yasmin performed with the Sawra band, which released two albums. Sawra recordings were widely aired on TV and radio, and Sawra participated in several festivals – as well as performing regular concerts in many Sudanese cities and towns to high media acclaim.
