Jonis Bascir

Jonis Bascir (Muheddin Hagi Bascir)

Actor and soundtrack composer (Rome, Italy, 9.17.1960)

Born Muheddin Hagi Bascir in Rome of Somali father and Italian mother, grandson of Hagi Bashir Ismail Yousuf, first president of Somali national assembly. Growing up in Rome (he was back to Somalia only from 6 to 10), he studied acting, singing, dancing and guitar. Got a degree in Human Sciences, specialization film studies, at Sapienza University, and then had a master in Neuro-linguistic programming, becoming Business Coach and Life Coach. His first acting experiences came with theater in late 1980s and from time to time came back to theater productions, even if from early 1990s he started multiplying his appearances especially in TV series, shorts and videoclips, with some supporting roles in cinema. His notoriety in Italy is largely due to his role of Jonis in the popular Rai TV series Un medico in famiglia (2000-04). His skill as musician led him to compose some soundtracks for theater and film, at first occasionally and in latest years with more regularity: in March 2018, a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FloweR-POWER-216990865715007) was created in order to promote Flower Power, a new blues/rock band based in Rome and featuring, together with Bascir, three other musicians (Nicola Di Staso, Claudio Rizzo and Marco Vannozzi).
