Alsarah & the Nubatones introduces audiences to a dynamic fusion of sound. The Brooklyn-based, East-African, retro-pop group was born out of conversations about Nubian “songs of return,“ modern migration patterns, and the cultural exchanges between Sudan and Egypt. The ensemble features singer, songwriter and bandleader Alsarah, tabla player Rami El Aasser, oud player Haig Manouki, and bass player Mawuena Kodjovi. Since their debut performance in 2011, the group has performed around the world to critical acclaim. With audiences of all ages and backgrounds, Alsarah & The Nubatones have proven that soul crosses all cultures, languages, and people.
