SINKANE announces Spring 2015 tour

SINKANE announces Spring 2014 tour incl XOYO show. Busy P remix of "New Name"

After recently finishing of his UK tour, Sinkane AKA Ahmed Gallab & his band set the tone for 2015, confirming a world tour which will see him return to the UK in April – dates below.

He has also shared a remix of his current radio single ‘New Name’ by French DJ, producer & Daft Punk manager Busy P.

2014 has been a busy year for Sinkane, first touring the world for his work as music director for the ‘ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor’, and then in the latter half of the year, for his own music.

‘Mean Love’, released in September via City Slang (DFA in the US), saw Sinkane bowl over critics with his distinctive blend of sounds. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. This background merges with the lessons learned from Ahmed‘s stints with obsessive craftsmen such as Caribou, Yeasayer and Of Montreal, and especially the monumental task he underwent as musical director of ‘ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor.’
