One of the most famous Somali musicians alive- Hudeydi. He picked up this instrument known as the Oud at a very young age and continues to inspire young Somali musicians and artists. It is believed he is over 100 years old.
Sadly, as in many parts of the world, throughout history there have been numerous periods when Somalia banned music and arrested or killed musicians for they were seen as devil worshippers.
The first ever created was back in 1890. Wooden dolls placed inside bigger wooden dolls until the smallest possible size, these typically represent a woman or "babushka" (grandmother) on the outer layer but the inner dolls can be of any gender.

An outtake from a really exciting project for @h_collective magazine. For the first time, I get to see my work, in PRINT. Not only that, but I have the opportunity to share my story through words and images about my journey as a photographer. I can't wait to show you the rest of the images from this shoot. So much of who I am went into every detail.
Thank you to the amazing team that helped bring this vision to life!
