Sudan Archives contains multitudes. She first emerged as an avant-garde violinist who channeled her playing through loop pedals. But she's also much more than that: lovelorn songwriter, powerful vocal performer, and experimental beat maker. She's captivated audiences at festivals around the world with her hybrid sound, playing at Coachella, Pitchfork Midwinter, and FORM: Arcosanti, and sharing stages with St Vincent, Ibeyi, and Michael Kiwanuka while touring her trail-blazing EPsSudan Archives(2017) andSink(2018). Sudan's many identities truly coalesce in her debut album,Athena: a psychedelic, magnetic take on modern R&B that's unlike anything else you've heard.
