Curated by OkayAfrica

Alsarah & the Nubatones unite audiences across ages, languages, and ethnicities drawn to their infectious brand of east African retropop. Influenced by ancient Nubian songs of return and modern migration patterns, the Brooklyn-based group was born out of conversations between singer-songwriter Alsarah and percussionist Rami El Aasser about the cultural exchange between Sudan and Egypt. Sharing a common love for the richness of pentatonic sounds, the soulful duo eventually expanded to include oud, bass, and other instruments, and has performed at festivals and venues across globe. This special performance will be a salute to the Sudan Uprisings, curated and performed by Marine Elneel and various other members of the Sudani diaspora.

BAMcafé Live presents Alsarah & the Nubatones in conjunction with OkayAfrica 100 Women. Now in its third year, OkayAfrica 100 Women is a multifaceted platform honoring women innovators across the world during Women’s History Month. This year’s list is dedicated to youth culture, celebrating those dedicated to disrupting the status quo locally and pushing for inclusivity for African women globally. OkayAfrica connects audiences to African culture and its global diaspora through immersive content and experiences.
