Tune in on Sunday, September 25th @ 9:15PM to hear Velvet Einstein in conversation with violinist, singer, songwriter and producer, Sudan Archives. Catch her live at The Independent in SF on Tuesday, September 27th.
Sudan Archives grew up in Cincinnati where she “messed around with instruments in the house” and took up violin in the fourth grade, teaching herself how to play the instrument by ear. When she discovered the violin playing style of Northeast Africa her eyes opened to the possibilities of the instrument.
Drawing inspiration from Sudanese fiddlers, she is self-taught on the violin, and her unique songs also fold in elements of R&B, experimental electronic music, and beat-making.
New album, Natural Brown Prom Queen, is out now on Stones Throw Records.
