About

Ahmed Gallab of Sinkane has always paved his own way, defying all odds and surpassing expectations. With seven albums under his belt and an illustrious career as a composer, producer, and band leader, he has orchestrated remarkable projects. From the resounding revival of William Onyeabor, to writing a musical for the Roald Dahl Foundation, Gallab’s journey has been extraordinary. Born to Sudanese parents and raised as a hardcore skate punk kid in Ohio, he is preparing to bring forth his latest opus.

Sinkane fuses elements of krautrock, electronica, reggae, free jazz and funk rock with Sudanese pop to create music inspired by his experiences. Despite–or rather, because of–his unclassifiable sound, the City Slang signee is championed by a multitude of musical legends. Prior to embarking on his solo career, he worked with Eleanor Friedberger, Caribou, of Montreal, Born Ruffians, and Yeasayer as a session musician. As Band Leader and Music Director of the Atomic Bomb! Band, he’s collaborated with rotating group members including David Byrne, Money Mark, Damon Albarn, Dev Hynes, Alexis Taylor, Amadou and Mariam, Jamie Lidell, Pharoah Sanders, Joshua Redman, among others.

Gallab’s music is his personal story, but it’s also everyone’s story. This truly universal approach leaves no room for irony or cynicism. Fueled by Gallab’s very heartbeat, it erupts into an ambitious, dazzling sound only conceivable by Sinkane.
