Music From Egypt + Sudan (5) - Alsarah + The Nubatones: Presented by MARSM UK, this is part of a new captivating musical showcase in the heart of London to celebrate Egypt's and Sudan’s most vibrant and inspiring artists. A journey from traditional folklore to alternative rock, retro-pop to roots and more. This final show will bring the Sudanese born singer, songwriter and ethnomusicologist Alsarah, who has been described by The Guardian newspaper as 'the new star of Nubian pop'. This will be her London debut concert and she will be joined by The Nubatones, together sharing their love for Nubian music and a genuine belief that soul transcends all cultural and linguistic barriers. Inspired by the pentatonic scale they will blend a selection of Nubian 'songs of return' from the 1970s to present day with original material and traditional music of central Sudan.
