On the 23rd of October the Sudanese-born multi instrumentalist Ahmed Gallab aka Sinkane will release his new album "Mars" through DFA Records (City Slang Records in Europe/UK). It has been quite a long way from Khartoum to one of James Murphy's finest, which have lead him to tour with bands such as Caribou, of Montreal and Yeasayer.
The inspiration for "Mars" is taken from a wide variety of genres such as soul, electronic, country-western, dub and Sudanese music. What the genres have in common is that they share the same soulful and spiritual vibe. You can pick up a signed copy from here (if you are lucky enough to live in US, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia or Japan...) or here.
