About the Program

Experience the effortless appeal of Brooklyn-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Sinkane. Both nostalgic and ultramodern, Sinkane’s music fuses free jazz, shoegaze, krautrock, Sudanese pop, and funk, inviting audiences to move and make connections together.

Born in London and raised in Sudan and Ohio, Sinkane (a.k.a. Ahmed Gallab) has performed with such celebrated bands as Caribou, Yeasayer, and Of Montreal. In 2014, he released his most recent album, Mean Love, described as “outstanding, style-hopping pop” by the Guardian. He also served as the musical director of ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor, a series of performances paying tribute to the title Nigerian synth-pop musician. Damon Albarn, David Byrne, Money Mark, and Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip, among others, contributed to the series.

At the Skirball, Sinkane will perform tracks from both his forthcoming album and his extensive back catalogue.

Arrive early to enjoy a DJ set by Peaking Lights Acid Test!

Note: Unfortunately, due to medical reasons, Songhoy Blues have canceled their performance at the Skirball previously scheduled on this date.
