Alsarah & The Nubatones - Soukrua (Boddhi Satva Ancestral Soul Remix)
Purchase 12” or Digital on our Bandcamp http://wonderwheelrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/soukura-ep ;
Wonderwheel Recordings is proud to present the debut EP & a remix 12” for new signing Alsarah & The Nubatones. Called “The New Star Of Nubian Pop” by The Guardian, the album was produced solely by Alsarah who describes the sound of Silt as “East African Retro Pop” - it’s music that harkens back to the hazy sounds of 1960s and 70s Nubian music with its haunting instrumentation, soaring vocal melodies, and pentatonic arrangements.
The original song “Soukura” with is a small taste of her upcoming album Silt (out on 3/11) and gets a signature deep and entrancing Ancestral Soul remix by African house legend Boddhi Satva . Perennial Wonderwheel favorite The Spy From Cairo gives “Nuba Noutou” a dubby dancehall re-rub, and label head Nickodemus takes “Rennat” into late night house territory with his remix, letting only the slightest of vocals come through and build tension until the final moments of the tune.
Alsarah, is a Sudanese born singer, songwriter and ethnomusicologist. Born in the capital city of Khartoum, where she spent the first 8 years of her life, she relocated to Taez, Yemen with her family to escape the ever stifling regime in her native country. She abruptly moved to the US in 1994, when a brief civil war broke out in Yemen. Now residing in Brooklyn, NY, she is a self-proclaimed practitioner of East-African retro-pop. Working on various projects, she most recently has been working with The Nile Project and was featured on their debut release, Aswan (named 1 of the Top 5 “Must Hear” international albums by NPR). She has also collaborated with French producer Débruit on the album Aljwal, released this past November via Soundway Records UK.
Boddhi Satva - Siriri Feat. Amos Kangala (Peace & Democracy in Central African Republic)
This song was recorded back in 2013 in Bangui (Central African Republic). It’s a collaboration between Amos Kangala and myself.
Recorded in my apartment in 36 Villas in Bangui, this song is a dedication a humble contribution to bringing peace and unity back in my Country Central African Republic. The title “Siriri” means “Peace” and speaks about breaking and stopping the spirit of tribalism, religious hatred and other forms of hatred that have led this amazing country where it is now.
It’s also one of the many songs that will from now on be dedicated in the loving memory of my late father who passed recently and who’s actions where devoted to bringing righteousness in the country.
