Baptized « the new star of Nubian pop » by the prestigious Guardian Magazine, the sudanese singer from Brooklyn Alsarah gracefully distils atemporal melodies over heady beats, at the crossroads of East-African and Arabic influences. After a successful first album “Silt” released in 2014 and performed on the most prestigious stages of the world, Alsarah and her musicians The Nubatones released “Manara” in 2016. This Spring they are releasing a new record. The songs of Alsarah & The Nubatones often deal with the question of home and what it sounds like, referring to her own nomadic experiences. The band played wonderful concerts at Roskilde Festival and ALICE the last two years, and were supposed to play at ALICE in March, but the concert got cancelled due to coronavirus. Therefore, we are excited to be able to welcome the group back to Nørrebro in October instead.
