Celebrating the release of her hot new album Natural Brown Prom Queen on Stones Throw, Sudan Archives comes to Berlin this November for a special live concert at Metropol in Schöneberg.
Sudan Archives is a violinist and vocalist who writes, plays, and produces her own music. 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. She signed to Stones Throw Records in 2017.
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.
“The way they played it was different from classical music. I resonated with the style,’“ she says. She began mixing my violin into beats, fusing of folk music and electronic production. She honed her at-home style after moving to Los Angeles aged 19 to study music technology.
