On 25th October, MARSM UK will present a night of elegant vibes and honeyed grooves. After all, that’s what happens when you programme a line-up with two acts playing quality Middle Eastern and North African influenced notes.
Alsarah & the Nubatones and Juliana Yazbeck’s music is easy to dance to but is unlike some sugar-coated easy-listening pop. Their smooth sound has grown through the years thanks to the dedication of all the musicians involved and their creativity. If Alsarah & the Nubatones brought a new perspective to Sudanese (Nubian) music of the 1960s and 70s, Juliana Yazbeck’s inspiration lies in her Lebanese roots, then moves into more urban soundscapes.
…and they will inevitably end up charming you!
