ALSARAH & THE NUBATONES
QUEEN OF EAST-AFRICAN RETRO-POP
East-African retro pop is how Al-Sarah & The Nubatones describe their own sound, with founding members from Sudan and Egypt, without sonically neglecting the band members hailing from Armenia and Togo. Their shared experiences of migration, preference for rich sounds and love for Nubian music has brought them together. As a band, they perform their own take on ‘songs of return’, poetic songs that describe the collective longing for the flooded Nubia-the land surrounding the Nile. Much more than merely poetry, Al-Sarah and the Nubatones will keep heads bopping during Roots, with their catchy, up-beat tunes.
