Product description

Product Description

With her debut solo album 'Ya Nass' (2013), Lebanese singer-songwriter Yasmine Hamdan (Hailed as "Arabic music's modern voice" by New York Times), introduced her personal, modern take on Arabic pop. In 'Al Jamilat' ('The Beautiful Ones'), she pursues her musical exploration, while taking a look at the mutations at work within the Arab world. 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 this album, which she jointly produced with UK producers Luke Smith (Foals, Depeche Mode, Lily Allen) and Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Carl Barât), and recorded with contributions from NY musicians Shahzad Ismaily (Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, John Zorn, Marc Ribot) and Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley. The success of the 'Ya Nass' album saw Yasmine's profile rise greatly in Europe and America. In the Middle East she's enjoyed iconic status since the days of Soapkills, one of the first indie/electronic bands in the area. She's performed prestigious shows on four continents and appeared in the Jim Jarmusch movie "Only Lovers Left Alive", where she's featured singing, onscreen, in one of the film's most memorable scenes.

Another outstanding album from Jasmine. Still to decide track I like the best but it's a wonderful blend of traditional style Arabic music with modern technology and beat electro style. Her voice is so melodious, almost seductive, leaving you wanting more. Original and to fall in love with. Got to see her live one of these days.

Its OK but not what I was expecting. The songs are rather monotonous and her voice is often over powered by her music backing. Nothing like the quality of another great Lebanese singer Fairuz. I guess it's down to the individuals personal liking.

By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 4 April 2017
Format: Audio CD
I gave a warm greeting to Lebanese singer Yasmine Hamdan’s debut album ‘Ya Nass’ in
these pages back in 2013 and despite my continuing lack of any kind of understanding of
the Arabic language I remain enchanted by her voice. ‘Al Jamilat’ is a beautiful recording.

There are eleven new songs to savour in the collection. The opening track ‘Douss’ with
its transparent arrangement and balmy vocal harmonies is a stunner; a must for a warm
Summer's day. So too ‘La Ba’den’ which seems to shimmer with a limpid inner heat haze.
‘Cafe’ pitches a haunting traditional Middle Eastern melody against a grinding, caliginous
contemporary electronic backdrop to highly atmospheric effect. The curiously convoluted
invention ‘La Chey’ lopes along like a tipsy dream; the album’s impressionistic highlight.

Ms Hamdan has delivered one of the most intriguing and affecting releases of the year
so-far. I entreat you to hear it, even if you (like me) are unable to fathom a single word!

Essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars and I think she just gets better and better 28 April 2017

Another solid album by Yasmine Hamdan. I've been listening to her music for over 12 years (back when she was in Soap Kills), and I think she just gets better and better.
