Sinkane Returns to UK for Headline Show

Following the release of Sinkane’s debut album at the end of last year, Ahmed Gallab has now returned to the UK for a headline show, Rough Trade East performance and a DJ set.

Ahmed Gallab has made a mini-documentary to tell his fans what to expect from these shows. The video can be viewed below.

The shows come in the wake of a fantastic trip to SXSW this year when Gallab was invited by the Afghan Whigs to join them and Usher on stage to perform SINKANE single Runnin. You can watch the clip from SXSW below.

Gallab is known in musician circles for having been the touring multi-instrumentalist for Of Montreal, Caribou, Born Ruffians and Eleanor Friedberger but he didn’t start there. Gallab’s family left Sudan when he was a boy, immigrated to the US and moved all over the country. He went to high school in Kent, Ohio. There, he found his first musical community in the town’s unsung but thriving post-hardcore scene.
