Sinkane loves London and London loves him. That’s why, more often than not, the British capital has the pleasure of hosting his gigs/perfomances/DJ-sets.
It’ll happen again on the 6th of September, when the Sudanese-American musician will play at Heaven in Charing Cross, only a few months after his latest British appearance. But we have no doubt that his fans will pack the venue once again. Life & Livin’ It, Sinkane’s latest album, is still fresh in their memories and they know that every show by the London-born musician is a one-off experience.
Sinkane gigs are jam-like: he welcomes you in his electro- and afro-pop, funky world and after a few minutes, thanks to the support of his talented stage partners, he will transport you far beyond your musical expectations. But don’t worry, because as he sings in ‘U’huh’: “Kulu shi tamaam, we’re all going to be all right”.
With so much good music being published and uploaded every month, we constantly find hard to keep up with all the releases. Luckily, “we get by with a little help from our friends”… We are more than thrilled to welcome and introduce you to Chamonix-based online radio, record label, DJs…
