Sinkane Streams New Single “How We Be”

Sinkane Streams New Single "How We be" 'Mean Love' LP Out September 2nd on DFA Records, Sinkane plays his next show July 20th at the Latitide festival

Sinkane has released the second single from his forthcoming record, Mean Love, out September 2nd on DFA and City Slang worldwide. With an aim to “create truly universal music,” Sinkane has expanded on his experiences and background to create a multifaceted, eclectic and purely modern record with intensely poetic lyrics. The solo project of Ahmed Gallab, he notes that Sudanese music itself is a hodgepodge of influences, and “it’s very dramatic, very romantic, and very groovy at the same time.” Listeners will surely find Mean Love to be the same, with its soulful sound that straddles the line between traditional Pan-African rhythms and modern song structures. Check out Sinkane on tour this Fall, and stay tuned for more dates from the Atomic Bomb Band, The Music of William Onyeabor, Music Directed by Ahmed and featuring Sinkane, Money Mark, Alexis Taylor and others, with all dates below.
