Yasmin Hafedh has secured her place among the most interesting and complex female MCs in the German-speaking region. One of the leading voices in poetry slams, she discovered her passion for this art form very early on; her interest in hip hop also led her to express herself through rap. The artist has performed for the past two years with a eight-member jazz band, Yasmo & die Klangkantine.
In her raps, Yasmin Hafedh conveys her critical, yet clever take on life, female perspective, feminism and social developments. After a number of singles and much-lauded festival performances, the ensemble has finally released a full-length oeuvre, a perfect symbiosis of hip hop and jazz. Yasmin Hafedh will co-curate the well established Popfest Wien 2019.
