As part of the 13th Annual World Music Festival, Inner-City Muslim Action Network’s Community Café hosted Alsarah and the Nubatones at the University of Chicago’s International House on 17 September 2011. Know for their collective love of Nubian music, Alsarah and the Nubatones brought a medley of grace, funk and East African soul to the stage. Alsarah’s beautifully raw voice arched over traditional Sudanese percussion and oud polyrythms which were greeted by melismatic backround vocals, making them the most eclectic performance of the evening. You can learn more about Alsarah and the Nubatones on their facebook page.
