Yashna International

Quite honestly I think my fans must be really sad wondering why I have been so M.I.A. this year, but I have been studying and developing my craft so that I can return with even more incredible songs to share with them. In September 2023 I will be releasing a 3-part EP series titled Song Around the world, featuring collaborations with producers, songwriters, and artists, across the globe! The EP series features an array of genres which is apt since I pride myself in being a multi-genre artist, however each EP has a particular theme. The first EP is titled Emotions which sheds light into some of the emotional battles that I faced this year. Yashna was also able to integrate her passion for dance and drama by curating stunning visuals over the years, an all-rounder, which makes her a force to be reckoned with. Her music videos have been dominating South African music television channels such as MTV Base, Trace Urban, race Africa and Channel O. This artist is also no stranger to collaborations having joined forces to create hits with
heavyweight artists such as Sketchy Bongo,
Tyler ICU and Vigro Deep, to name a few.
She received the Best Musician Award at the
2020 Durban Creative Awards, won the Joox
Opening Act competition, opened up for Master KG, formed part of Shekinah’s Rosefest 2020 line-up, and made it to the semi-finals of
Sportscene’s “Put Me On” competition in the
same year. In 2021 she featured in Drum
Magazine, Slikour’s “Hot on the Streets,” as well as
Sportscene’s “Weekend Turn-Up” segment.

In 2022 Yashna was nominated in the Best Hip Hop Artist category at the first annual Basadi Women in Music Awards, she was selected as one of the female artists to form part of Trace’s #SearchingForParadise compilation, Stimirol also chose her to be part of their Flow Lab segment,
and she performed as part of the Top 10 in the
Hunters Cider x Jacquel Culture House that
featured on MTV Base.
Durban based multi-genre singer/songwriter,
Yashna International, has solidified her place in the music industry over the last few years. Having entered the scene in the latter part of 2016, Yashna has been able to break moulds and shift gears for independent artists with her accomplishments.
Emotional battles that I faced this year. The
second EP is titled Experimental and includes bold genres that I would not ordinarily release such as Pop Rock and Brazilian Funk to name a few, and the third and final EP is titled Essentials which include songs that are easy on the ear, and more commercially viable. The 3-part EP series includes 15 songs in total. The perfect way to kick of Spring, and usher in the Summer vibes.
