Musicians Yasmine and Zeid Hamdan formed Soapkills shortly after the civil war ended and created a new form of Arabic music. Yasmine felt she could not grow in Lebanon and moved to Europe, while Zeid started a music label in Beirut.
Yasmine changed perceptions of musicians in Lebanon; she is not a commercial pop star or traditional Arabic singer. Her music is uniquely Lebanese, inspiring other artists.
Yasmine has been continuing her solo career in France but returns to Beirut to film a music video. She still feels at home and finds inspiration from the city.
