Sounds of Sudan: Nabra + Ligeti Quartet


Sounds of Sudan is an exciting, brand new collaboration between the Bristol based oud duo Nabra and one of the UK’s leading contemporary ensembles the Ligeti String Quartet.

They’ll be journeying through the different regions of Sudan – Khartoum, Omdurman, Darfur – weaving new arrangements inspired by the rich musical culture of the country: traditional Sufi music, popular artists such as Abdel Gadir Salim and Nour Al Jilani, the evocative rhythms and scales of the region.

This will be a magical, transporting experience brought to you by an innovative combination of virtuoso players.
