Sinkane performs at the Skirball

Skirball Cultural Center

2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90049

8:00pm

Experience the effortless appeal of Brooklyn-based singer and multi-instrumentalist Sinkane. Both nostalgic and ultramodern, Sinkanes 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.
