Powerful Sudanese-American singer Alsarah fronts this extraordinary band bound together by a collective love for Nubian music and the genuine belief that soul transcends all cultural and linguistic barriers. They blend a selection of Nubian 'songs of return' from the 1970s to today with original, Western soul-inspired material and vintage Sudanese pop. Their set is a musical journey through diaspora and migration viewed through an urban lens.
"A blend of original compositions and traditional pieces, grounded in the Sudanese and Nubian musical traditions but sails in the pocket of funk and soul music." -Afropop Worldwide
