What a time to be alive!

Life in 2023 can best be described as “dynamic”. A confluence of cultures, a global pandemic, fear, hate, love. The world got smaller because of social media. We have access to everything, so much so that it all kind feels like nothing, doesn’t it?

Sinkane is a band from Brooklyn, NY. At its center is Ahmed Abdullahi Gallab. A Sudanese-American weirdo who is heavily inspired by the “dynamic” world that we live in. The music quotes themes from the African diaspora: East and West Africa, Jamaica, American Soul and Funk music. It talks about the black struggle and it’s very, very funky.

It’s easy to feel depressed right now, but Sinkane aims to face all of these challenges, all the while dancing. There’s always time for dancing.
