Alsarah & the Nubatones came together out of a collective love for Nubian music and a genuine belief that soul transcends all cultural and linguistic barriers.
 
Inspired by the pentatonic scale, they blend a selection of Nubian 'songs of return' from the 1970s to today with original and traditional music of central Sudan.
 
Their concerts are a musical journey through diaspora and migration, fusing the sounds and styles of disparate cultures into music that is both modern and nostalgic.
 
Band leader Alsarah describes herself as a practitioner of "East African retro-pop" — a lavish, joyful, era-spanning sound full of Arabic-language reflections on identity and survival. 
 
Presented in collaboration with Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design.
