Alsarah and the Nubatones X Juliana Yazbeck

A spellbinding journey into Nubian musical heritage, Alsarah and the Nubatones are a 5-piece collective led by the eponymous Sudanese singer, songwriter and ethnomusicologist Alsarah. Her inspiring and innovative voice has become a trademark for the burgeoning scene of ‘East-African retro-pop’ as well as being involved in numerous initiatives such as the stellar ‘Nile Project’ and collaborating with French producer Débruit.

Meanwhile, The Nubatones craft an eclectic mix of north and east African tunes with Arabic influences. Inspired by the pentatonic scale they blend a selection of Nubian 'songs of return' from the 1970s until today with original material and traditional music of central Sudan; their set is a musical journey through diaspora and migration through an urban lens.

JULIANA YAZBECK

Born to Lebanese parents, Juliana draws on her mixed cultural upbringing to create her signature sound: an unlikely but mesmerising fusion of spoken word, otherworldly electronics, and haunting Levantine vocals.

Juliana Yazbeck’s debut record SUNGOD is a political and spiritual cry; a journey of celebrating our pre-Westernised identities. Unapologetic and raw, Juliana’s lyrics challenge the effects of colonisation on cultural identities and its impact on the current state of love, relationships and gender inequality. It is a call to shed internalised shame: to remember, reawaken, and reclaim our inherent and divine beauty... both as women and as autonomous peoples.

Opening and closing on the night is none other than DJ Saliah.

This event has been made possible with support from Al Araby TV.
