Ticket Giveaway: Sinkane

Listening to Sinkane can transport you to many different eras and geographic locations all in the span of a three-minute song. His voice ranges from a sweet falsetto like that of the Bee Gees and then low and sensual over heavy bass and a reggae rhythm section. He doesn’t shy away from synths and groovy effects to give his music a quirky and dream-like quality. When you understand that his background includes time spent in London, Sudan and Brooklyn, this natural mash-up of sounds and time periods makes perfect sense.

Afropop has been following the talented musician for a couple years. You can read this interview from Oct. 2015 with Sinkane, born Ahmed Gallab, and producer Sam Backer.
