Intercultural Journeys kicks off its 2016/17 season, HOMELAND: Cultural Migrations Through Artistry, with the Philadelphia premiere 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.

The Brooklyn-based band will perform songs from their internationally renowned debut album, Silt, as well as songs from their latest release, Manara (Wonder Wheel Recordings).
