This event is all ages
When singer Alsarah left her native Sudan, music served as her coping mechanism during her transition to life here in the U.S. Her curiosity led her to a degree in ethnomusicology and to other musicians who were interested in exploring the intersection of culture, music and migration. Together, their one-of-a-kind concert celebrations draw influence from Nubian Songs of Return and East African pop from the '60s and '70's, exploring the richness of cross-cultural exchanges through a seamless blend of vocals with percussion, bass and oud.
“In their hands, the music pulses, breathes and comes alive with a mix of tradition and contemporary influences.” — NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts
