Qalanjo was born in Somalia.

She was the first Miss Somalia.

Qalanjo was the singer that started the modernization of the Somali folk song tradition of dhaanto, introducing instrumentation where hitherto it had been performed without.[2]

Qalanjo's onstage performances often featured seductive hip-swaying and elaborate hand-gesturing. Her songs usually dealt with the pangs and joys of love unrequited, lost and regained. She currently lives in London, United Kingdom.

Qalanjo belongs to the Jibril Younis subclan of the Makahiil Samaroon (Gadabuursi) sub-division of the Mandaluug sub-clan of the Dir clan family.


Popular songs by Qalanjo include:[3]

  • Caashaqa Sal iyo Baar
  • Ragga iyo Haweenkuba
  • Deesha
  • Sharaf
  • Hooyo
  • Soohor Caashaqa – duet with Hasan Adan Samatar
  • Diriyam – in 2016 a cover was made by the Ethiopian Jano Band.
