An Evening of East African Retro-Pop: Alsarah & The Nubatones
8:00 PM – 10:00 PM
“…powerful voice and eclectic mix of north and east African tunes, as well as Arabic sounds and traditions” – The Guardian
Sudan-born and Yemen-raised, Alsarah is a singer, songwriter, and ethnomusicologist who gives voice to a narrative of displacement that encompasses her Sudanese musical canon. Based in Brooklyn, The Nubatones blend a selection of Nubian “songs of return” with original material and traditional music of central Sudan, and – with a distinctly urban sensibility – create a musical journey through diaspora and migration.
