Afropop Spectacular

Sahara Soul with Alsarah and the Nubatones and Natu Camara

November 8, 2019



A double bill of electro-pop from Africa. 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. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Natu Camara has been heralded as the Tina Turner of Guinea and in the 1990s led The Ideal Black Girls, West Africa's first all-female hip-hop group.(Due to difficulties in obtaining a US visa, Sidi Touré has cancelled his US tour and will not appear as part of this concert.)
