Born in Russia and spending her early childhood in Algeria, Yasmine moved to Paris when she was eight. At this time she started to sing in a local choir and began to write her own music, using a second-hand piano provided by her mother.
Yasmine Meddour gets inspiration from classical music (Ravel, Mahler, Shostakovich), film composers (A.Desplat, C. Mansell, J. Johannsson), alternative Rock artists (Radiohead, Bjork) and electronic music.
At the time she was studying music in high school, the film director Xavier Gens offered her to compose and sing an original song for his feature film "The Divide". Passionate about the relation between music and moving Images, Yasmine decides to work as a film composer. In 2020, she composes a song for the movie « Papicha » directed by Mounia Meddour, in competition at the Festival de Cannes and which won two awards at the Cesar ceremony. The same year, she participates as a composer at the International Music and film Festival of Aubagne Masterclass. In 2022, she composes with Maxence Dussère the original score for the movie « Houria », Mounia Meddour’s second feature film. Yasmine is currently working with sound designer Paolo Castrini, on her first EP project, exploring sounds and memories from her childhood in Kabylie, Algeria.
