He later participated in the radio show “Shackles and Colors” hosted by Ahmad Al-Zubair and performed the song “Loss and Hope” by poet Muhammad Ali Jabbara, which was his gateway to the world of singing. .

Al-Amin has been a guest at many song festivals inside and outside of Sudan, and has given concerts in Arab and European countries and the United States, among them the First Culture Festival in Algeria, the International Youth Festival in Moscow, and the Music Arts Festival in the Netherlands.
