Alsarah and the Nubatones. Wonderwheel Recordings WONDER 21LP. by Helen Gregory 23 July, 2014. Being tagged as The New Star Of Nubian Pop might seem like being presented with a useful marketing label but it also carries an implied burden of proof. Thankfully, the Sudanese born singer/songwriter Alsarah is smart enough to sidestep the issue by focusing on the music, describing the sound of Silt as East African Retro Pop, although this in itself is a pretty vague label. Wad Alnuba features a guest appearance by members of The Sounds of Taraab, with whom both Alsarah and Haig Manoukian have previously worked. Taraab is a particular form of music with its origins in Zanzibar and coastal East Africa and its fusion of African rhythms with Arabic and Indian popular music adds a wealth of timbres.
