Intercultural Journeys kicks off its 2016/17 season, Homeland: Cultural Migrations Through Artistry, off with Brooklyn-based Alsarah & The Nubatones. Alsarah is a Sudanese-born singer, songwriter, and self-proclaimed practitioner of East African retro-pop, whose music is deeply rooted in Nubian ‘Songs of Return’ from the 1960s and 70s, and contemplates modern migration patterns and cultural exchanges between Sudan and Egypt. IJ welcomes Alsarah & The Nubatones for their first ever Philadelphia appearance, performing music from their internationally renowned debut album, Silt, as well as from their upcoming new album release.
