Public Conversation: Alsarah @ Beyù Caffè

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 | 6:00 pm

In this evening talk at Beyù Caffè in downtown Durham, Sudanese-born singer Alsarah discusses her artistic process and journey, which began as a double refugee — first from conflict in Sudan, then from civil war in neighboring Yemen. Moderated by Durham-based artist and activist Saba Taj.

Alsarah’s residency at Duke will culminate in a performance with her band, Alsarah & The Nubatones, when she brings her infectious brand of “East-African retro pop” to Motorco Music Hall on the evening of Thursday, March 1. Tickets and info are available HERE.

Alsarah & The Nubatones’ residency at Duke Performances is funded, in part, by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, and co-sponsored by the Duke Islamic Studies Center, the Duke University Middle East Studies Center, the Duke Africa Initiative, the Forum for Scholars and Publics at Duke University, and Be Connected, hosted by Beyù Caffè.
