Sinkane Brings the “Best Kind of Chaos” to MIAC by Sara Toth

If a mix of Afropop, dubstep, R&B, and psychedelic pop sounds chaotic, well, you’re not wrong. But it’s the best kind of chaos.

Singer/guitarist Ahmed Gallab and his band, Sinkane, are set to take the stage at Mercyhurst University for a night of cross-cultural – but not clashing – influences. Born in Sudan, Gallab’s style is gorgeous but defies definition — kind of like the ballet dancers in Sinkane’s music video for their 2014 single, “How We Do.”

Oh, and Gallab’s resume is pretty solid, too: he’s played with Caribou, Yeasayer, and Of Montreal (be still, my little hipster heart) and was musical director of the supergroup ATOMIC BOMB!

Need another reason? Arrive early for beer tastings with Lavery Brewing Company. Drinks and a show! — Sara Toth
