Sounds of Sudan

They’ll be journeying through the different regions of Sudan – Khartoum, Omdurman, Darfur – weaving new arrangements inspired by the rich musical culture of the country: traditional Sufi music, popular artists such as Abdel Gadir Salim and Nour Al Jilani, the evocative rhythms and scales of the region.
