About the Event

An inspired double bill of cutting-edge African electropop! Born in Sudan and based in Brooklyn, vocalist Alsarah weaves classic East African pop sounds with subtle electronics, Middle Eastern oud, driving percussion, and lilting vocal harmonies in her enchanting music. Boasting "a sound that flows like silt through your fingers one minute and starts a fire beneath your feet the next.... [she] has the makings of an Afropop queen" (PopMatters). And singer, songwriter, and guitarist Natu Camara has been heralded as "the Tina Turner of Guinea" and in the 1990s led The Ideal Black Girls, West Africa's first all-female hip-hop group. (Please note: due to difficulties in obtaining a US visa, Sidi Touré has cancelled his US tour and will not appear as part of this concert.)
