words + photos by Joe Cortez

Enchanting Lebanese singer-songwriter Yasmine Hamdan graced the El Rey Theatre stage on Tuesday night, November 14 for a captivating set of songs featuring tracks off her latest release, “Al Jamilat” (available now via Ipecac Records/Crammed Discs).

Considered a groundbreaking, underground artist in her homeland, Hamdan’s appearance in LA was a rare one and her striking performance lived up to her moniker as a talent to be watched and reckoned with.
