Alsarah & The Nubatones

December 13 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

$40

Alsarah is a singer, songwriter, bandleader and a somewhat reluctant ethnomusicologist. Born in Khartoum, Sudan, she relocated to Yemen with her family before abruptly moving to the U.S., finally feeling most at home in Brooklyn where she has resided since 2004.

With her main outfit, Alsarah & the Nubatones, she has released 2 full-length albums titled Silt, followed by Manara (Wonderwheel Recordings, 2014 and 2016). She has also released a full-length album with French electronic producer Débruit titled Aljawal (Soundways Recordings, 2013). She was featured on the Nile Project‘s debut CD, Aswan (named in the top 5 must-hear international albums by NPR, 2014).

Alsarah & the Nubatones were born out of many dinner conversations between Alsarah and Rami El Aasser about nubian ‘songs of return’, modern migration patterns and the cultural exchanges between Sudan and Egypt. The band includes French-born Togo-raised bass player, Mawuena Kodjovi; brilliant oudist and former student of Haig Manoukian (a founding member of the band who passed away in 2011), Brandon Terzic; and the charismatic and talented vocalist Nahid.

Under the leadership of Alsarah, the Brooklyn-based group’s sounds have grown into what they have dubbed ‘East-African retro-pop’.
