Yasmine learned to play the guitar, - like her father. Then, one day she came home, and there it was : a piano ! Not meant for her of course, but it soon became obvious that she would make it her own.
At 18, she was torn between her two loves : acting and music. She was accepted at the premier drama school in France, the Conservatoire National Supérieur d'Art Dramatique. She began to work in theatre, film, and television.

She wrote songs and instrumentals for stage and screen. She wrote and produced a programme for the radio station France Culture ; broadcast in September 2006 and entitled Métis nous sommes des 200%, deux sangs pour sang.

Yasmine started performing her own music in the '90s with her brother, Samuel, on saxophone and clarinet, then later with invited friends (vocalists and other musicians), and of course on her own.
Last summer she made her solo debuts in England, in beautiful Noss Mayo, Devon. And in spring 2010, she toured in South Korea for the celebration of the 40e anniversary of the francophony, and went back to Noss Mayo for an other concert.

Her live album, "A-Live !", was released in March 2010.
"Out of the Blue", her second album, was recorded with several young exciting musicians, Rémi Toulon pianist from the jazz trio Take 3, Emile Biayenda, percussionnist of Les Tambours de Brazza band, Jean-Luc Arramy (basse), Samuel Modestine (sax) and Berti Vox (guitar). It was released on Nov 22, 2010.

Le Solitaire publishing house has published three of her plays.

In spring 2012, Yasmine will sing in Brittany.
