Born in London and reared in Sudan – the multiculturalism that coloured Ahmed Gallab’s upbringing shines through the technicolor sound of Sinkane. Their latest LP, Life & Livin’ It, is true to its name: it’s an album about all kinds of experiences. Produced by founder and frontman Gallab, the album draws from the best elements of Sinkane’s previous records with slinky funk and soul grooves alongside sparkling melodies with roots in sub-Saharan Africa.

Coming off a busy 2016 leading The Atomic Bomb Band – the celebrated 15-piece outfit that played the music of elusive Nigerian electro-funk maestro William Onyeabor – Sinkane will surely be channeling the recently departed master when they brings their frenetic, genre-blurring show to Body&Soul this June.
