    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.
