Sahara Soul with
Alsarah and the Nubatones
and Sidi Touré

An inspired double bill of Nubian electro-pop and electrified desert blues from Mali. Singer and guitarist Sidi Touré updates the hypnotic Malian guitar music first popularized by Ali Farka Touré through the sounds of his new electric band—exhilarating trance music that overflows with joy, carried by the beauty of Touré’s singular voice. 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. “A sound that flows like silt through your fingers one minute and starts a fire beneath your feet the next…. Alsarah has the makings of an Afropop queen” (PopMatters).
