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

Thursday, Nov. 19

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!
