GENEVA, November 2 (UNHCR) – Born in Mogadishu, Siham and Iman Hashi are the first female Somali artists to sign a record deal with a major American label. After the civil war broke out in Somalia in the 1990s, the girls and their family moved to Canada as refugees. They are currently in Los Angeles recording their first album as “Sweet Rush” with Universal Motown, while finding time to raise awareness about the continuing suffering in their homeland. The sisters discussed their lives and work recently with UNHCR Web Editor Leo Dobbs in Geneva, where they performed at the Nansen Refugee Award ceremony. Excerpts from the interview:
Tell us about your departure from Somalia
Sweet Rush has posted 3 new photos to their Facebook account recently.
Sweet Rush attended and performed at The UNHCR Nansen Awards that took place Monday October 4 in Geneva. The UNHCR posted a news article about the event on their official website – mentioning Sweet Rush along with a photo of them performing. Here is what was written:
Canadian sisters Siham and Iman Hashi, who form the group Sweet Rush, and British musician Daniel Bedingfield performed at the event. Siham and Iman were resettled with their families in Canada after Somalia’s civil war erupted in 1991. The pair have been creating a lot of excitement in the music world and are currently recording their first album.
Sweet Rush has posted new display and background pictures on their Twitter from one of their most recent photoshoots which took place in a desert. The girls look fierce! Be sure to check the photos out. Hopefully, the full shoot will be released soon.
