Performer, composer and ethnomusicologist, the Sudanese singer Alsarah has had a life marked by conflicts and uprooting. After being exiled in the Yemen, she is now settled in Brooklyn, New York. She releases the thread of her itinerancy and its questioning of identity, with its timeless melodies and its grooves from East Africa. Between Arab and African culture, this voice with the aura of a Sudanese queen gives a new lease of life to 1970s Nubian pop in which persistent refrains whirl round and the oud is electrified with modern syncopations that tame ancient rhythms. A nostalgic, festive retro-pop lit up by the talent and erudition of this atypical singer.
