    Nimco Yasin (pronounced NIH-moh Yah-SEEN) rose to fame as part of a member of the legendary Waaberi Group in the 80s. Waaberi Group, or “Dawn Players,” was Somalia’s government-sponsored music and dance troupe that included the most talented singers, musicians, and dancers in the country. With more than 300 members over its 30-year existence, the group was a source of national pride and toured the world multiple times.

    Because of their status, artists were among the first to be impacted by increasing political instability in Somalia in the late 80s. Yasin fled Somalia to the UK in 1989, shortly before the onset of civil war which nearly wiped out the country’s rich artistic traditions. Since then, Yasin has rebuilt her career as a professional artist. Known for her striking voice and emotional love ballads, Yasin eloquently revives the vintage qaraami (or “Somali jazz”) sound that Waaberi was known for while bringing it into a modern context.
