Alsarah & the Nubatones reveal new video and a remixed version of their debut Silt (Wonderwheel Recordings) from earlier this year.
The US-based Sudanese singer’s self-proclaimed blend of ‘East African retro pop’ was a Top of the World selection in the July 2014 (#101) issue, following her work with The Nile Project and collaboration with Parisian producer Débruit (reviewed in #97).
Directed by Maryam Parwana (who also filmed ‘Soukura’), the new video for the traditional song ‘Habibi Taal’ was shot in Cairo and Brooklyn, in homage to their first show in the Egyptian capital.
Silt Remixed features reworkings by Boddhi Satva, Chancha Via Circuito and Clap! Clap!
