COOL BRIGHT WATER, written and performed by Yasmin Wilde (Faruqi)


Yasmin wrote this song (lyrics and music) and performed it too, including the piano part. The saxophone solo is by Peter Effamy, who also recorded the song.

  2. That was really impressive! What a lovely song! Not only are the lyrics beautiful, but the performance is flawless. The recording and the images are truly professional. The dolphin couple that stars in this lovely video, also tell a wonderful love story and illustrate the song perfectly. Where did Yasmin take her wonderful footage? I think the top 40 charts better keep an eye on this blooming young artist!

    1. Hi Elisabeth, thank you for the lovely comments. Yasmin is a singer/songwriter and an actor, and although she has recorded a few songs semi-professionally, she hasn't taken it any further. She works on stage and in television, but not that frequently any more, as she has her hands full as a mother and all that entails. It is difficult to get away for weeks on end and do a play, for instance. She still writes, and at the moment she is writing poetry for people who need speeches written for them, for weddings and other events. But at the moment it's the kids and family who have first call on her time. xxx

  3. What a very talented daughter you have Karin. You must be very proud. I'm sure she's been like this since she was a child and her children look to have inherited her talent for performing.
