Sinkane is the Brooklyn embodiment of a remarkable tradition of musical Afrofuturism, thriving in three great cities in the United States: Detroit, Chicago and New York. The founder of the project is Ahmed Gallab, a drummer and former member of Yeasayer, coming from Sudan, who confronted the language of contemporary rock with African polyrhythm and soul-funk groove. He admits that although brought up in the United States, he regularly visited his homeland and its music exerted a significant influence on what he creates today. Sinkane is regarded as the successor of TV On The Radio. Their career develops at an incredible pace – they started in New York clubs only to have their first album Mars released in 2012 by a legendary record label, DFA Records (releasing, for instance Coco Rosie). They perform at numerous international festivals, they gave concerts with such groups as Yeasayer, Afghan Whigs or Caribou.
