Alsarah & Nubatones Bring Hip Sudanese Music to Mass MoCA Nov. 10 [Berkshire on Stage]
Alsarah comes to the Berkshires and Mass MoCA, together with her band the Nubatones, to create music that reflects a journey through diaspora; this is musical migration filtered through an urban lens.
In an unusual evening that blends 1970s Nubian songs, Western soul and vintage Sudanese pop, Alsarah and the Nubatones rock Club B-10 at MASS MoCA on Saturday, November 10, 2012.
Heavily influenced by music from both her native homeland and her adopted ones, Alsarah, a Sudanese-American firecracker, is the leading lady of this extraordinary band bound together by a collective love for Nubian music and the belief that soul transcends all cultural barriers. Much of the music performed up in the club at MASS MoCA is sponsored by the Hans & Kate Morris Fund for New Music.
