Alsarah & The Nubatones (New York/Khartoum)

  • Kaserne 1B Klybeckstrasse Basel, BS, 4057 Switzerland (map)

If you were to ask Alsarah which words best describe the music of her band, The Nubatones, she would most likely say "east African retro-pop". Despite having its geographical base in Brooklyn: the musical heart of this combo is located somewhere between the Ivory Coast and the Red Sea. Together with Rami El Aasser, Brandon Terzic, Mawuena Kodjovi and Nahid, the Sudan born Alsarah creates a sound that takes the listener on an acoustic journey straight to the Nile Basin.
