Sudanese-born singer, songwriter, and ethnomusicologist, Alsarah, along with her sister Nahid on backing vocals, formed the Brooklyn-based quintet Alsarah and the Nubatones in 2010. Also including bassist Mawuena Kodjovi, oudist Brandon Terzic, and percussionist Rami El-Aasser, the group takes audiences on a musical journey through diaspora and migration from an urban perspective. Their self-coined “East African Retropop” sound combines original material with traditional music of central Sudan, inspired by their collective love for Nubian music and a genuine belief that soul transcends all cultural and linguistic barriers.

Free with Museum admission. Seating is available on garden benches and floor mats on a first-come, first-served basis.

#ArtistsAtNoguchi | Bang on a Can Music Series
noguchi.org/bangonacan

Presented in partnership with Bang on a Can, this innovative performance series is held in the Museum's outdoor sculpture garden. In case of rain or artist's preference, concerts take place in the galleries.

For the Summer 2017 season, Bang on a Can celebrates its 30-year journey with a series of concerts featuring musicians who have made their own journeys from other shores, pointing out that just as America is made from the experiences of people from many places, so is American music.
