Asia comes from Wad Medani, a city in central Sudan, famous for its art and artists, where she grew up in a house full of rhythms and music.

She’s a complete artist, due to her ability to play rhythms, songs and dance from the whole of Sudan, north to south and east to west. Her interest in the Sudanese heritage reflects her identity as a performer. Her Egyptian career began in the Cairo Opera House, where she participated – and still participates – in the annual summer festival.

Asia performs regularly at Makan, where she is an audience favorite. It is an important haven for her, because of the love of music and the spirit of tradition that still reigns there.
