GAP Presents! Sinkane
Jun 11, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| 15-20
It’s soul music! And truly universal; uniting rhythm and styles from the world over to help you move. Join Gowanus Art + Production on June 11th at 501 Union for GAP Presents! Sinkane.
Ahmed Gallab, frontman for Sinkane, has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. This background merges with the lessons learned from Ahmed‘s stints with obsessive craftsmen such as Caribou, Yeasayerand Of Montreal, and especially the monumental task he underwent as musical director of‘ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor.’
