Background of Yaya:
Yaya was born on 15 November 1988. Daughter of a Lebanese industrial and an Egyptian mother, she spent her early childhood in Lebanon.
She lived between France, Switzerland and the United-States, which gave her the opportunity to study in the most prestigious schools.
But Yaya is so passionate, she only had one dream, she wanted to sing. When she graduated, she came back to Lebanon where she met Alain S. and Stephanie F., two professionals in the music industry, who believed in her and decided to take care of her and her carrier. Then, she recorded her first single, «Yay!!» written, composed and arranged by Alain S.
From the first broadcast of Yaya’s single, she imposes herself like a rising star in the Middle Eastern music. This impact is in part due to the production of an extremely professional and innovative video clip, achieved by Alain Nasnas (director and his team).
In this process Yaya is also working on the making off a great album based on an original fusion, which allows to discover a new artistic wave. But the adventure his not ending there, Yaya has still a lot off surprises to come, which are going to be more and more innovative.
