STAVE SESSIONS: Yasmin Williams
Mar 31 2023
Yasmin Williams, a black woman in a multicolored top, sits on a red chair in front of a blue background playing a guitar sitting on her lap horizontally.
Yasmin Williams is an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist with an unorthodox, modern style of playing.
Yasmin Williams' style utilizes various techniques including alternate tunings, percussive hits, and lap tapping. Williams’ music is rich and harmonious, while “challenging widespread preconceptions about the music made by young Black people or acoustic guitars,” (Washington Post).
