Alsarah’s voice is like fresh mist on a blistering day. Inspired by Sudanese and Nubian music, Alsarah & The Nubatones formed just a year ago and are already creating soulful, funky music with abundance and great spirit.
Perhaps best described as East African retro-pop, the group’s self-titled debut intermixes original compositions with traditional pieces to birth highly melodic sonics that might induce a spasm or two before you find yourself in a possessed state of motion.
