Songs, songwriter and front figure Alsarah have been double refugees. Born in Khartoum, Sudan, she fled the family of Yemen before they suddenly had to move to the United States due to civil war.
Since 1994, she has been living in Brooklyn, describing her music as "East African retro pop".
She herself used music as a tool to deal with the transition to living in a foreign culture in the United States.
The interest in music led to studies in ethnomusic science, and not least to meetings with other musicians who had a common interest in the cross between culture, music and migration.
Together, they blend traditions and different cultures with modern musical expressions.
The band's philosophy is that music with soul transcends all cultural and linguistic boundaries.
